Nut , August 8, 2016 Dear Abrams Family, Though the rest of you don't know me, Robert surely did. I had the pleasure of teaching alongside him in Phatthalung, Thailand for a semester. He was a welcomed friend and colleague. I am very saddened by the news today that someone like Rob was taken from us so soon. I wish you all the strength you'll need to endure this. Rob would want us to be strong and tenacious. I wanted you to know that I will honor and miss him. Sincerely, Erich Erich Michael Stillmayer, November 11, 2015
