An acquaintance of Robby's was awakened in the middle of the night by Robby, and told to write a letter to his girlfriend and his family. The letter gradually changes into Robby's handwriting. Rob's girlfriend received the letter from this friend and didn't know what to think, so she brought it to us to see. We all thought it looked like Rob's handwriting. We even compared the signature to one on his credit card. He talked about being sorry he wasn't true to his word and that he had hurt everyone.
