Robbie Greenberger

I have just visited Peter David`s website and found out that Robbie Greenberger lost his fight against leukaemia. I haven`t seen anybody else posting this sad news on this board. Therefore I am doing it now.


I know how I would feel if I lost my daughter. Therefore I would like to add this to what PAD said: Don`t just appreciate that you are alive but also think of your family and friends. Treasure the time you have with them.


My condolences to Robbie`s family and friends. I wish you all strengths to handle this terrible loss.

Yeah... Bob was a great writer.

I'll keep his family in my prayers.

Yes Robert (SR) is very much alive and well. It's his son that lost his fight with cancer.

Anyway, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May we only hear good things.

There is a saying in Hebrew that we say when someone dies: Blessed be the one that judges favorably.

Re: Robbie Greenberger

Wow, I had no idea he had leukemia. Thank you for passing this on to the rest of us, Baerbel.

Rest in peace, Robbie.

Dear God, that's awful. I remember Robbie as a young child from my old days going to Shore Leave. My heart goes out to Bob and his family...I can't imagine any pain greater for a parent than losing a child.

My condolences. I have followed Bob's blog and seen the ups and downs.

I had hoped that Robbie might recover from the recent downturn.
