This is a note from Nancy Grill that she sent to the Grass Roots Yahoo Group Page
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you’ve given to Rob and I. It is such a difficult time, but knowing how much people loved Rob and The Grass Roots gives me a calm feeling somehow. I’ve been busy with phone calls from radio stations, The New York Times, CNN and the Associated Press! They are all compassionate and wanting to know the truth. Rob never thought of himself as a celebrity, (but as one lucky son of a gun who was able to have the same job and still love it for over 45 years.) He loved the songs (thanks Sloan and Berry) and I know he hoped the Grass Roots are able to continue pleasing fans for many more years to come. People are asking about a memorial service, etc…I’m going to wait until things calm down and people who want to celebrate his life from out of town can plan and buy airline tickets. Airfares now are so expensive at short notice. I will let you know. August, perhaps.As far as in lieu of flowers…Rob was a foster kid during periods of his life and he wanted to support local foster programs.We also always supported:
Cornerstone Hospice of Lake County,
2445 Lane Park Road, Tavares, FL 32778.Any contributions to Melanoma/Cancer Society (as that what took Christian’s life
away too soon as well as many others was important to Rob as well.
Thanks again and much love to you, More later, Nancy
