Rob and his wife Abby lost so much in the Boulder fire. They have been devastated by losing all of their personal history, mementos, belongings and the house they raised their children in, along with their retirement equity. The Boulder fire destroyed more than 1,000 homes, including their entire neighborhood of 140 homes. Literally the only thing left is ashes and a cement wall.
