Rob reunited us

If the saying “Life is in the reruns” is true, the New Kensington/Arnold Social in the Park in Memorial Park last weekend proved it.

A community of individuals pooled their resources together to eulogize Ron Greb, a friend and classmate who departed this life far too soon. Two mayors spoke of their lifelong friend as though they were still at play in a backyard. Family and friends told of the love Rob had for the theater and life in general, and the community mourned the loss of a friend who was the catalyst for this event.

The social also brought us together to rediscover a time in our lives that would never be matched — our youth.

When I left to return home that evening after reacquainting with friends from my past, I realized our friend's departure was responsible for bringing us together. Life is in the reruns. Thanks, Rob.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
