To robs family and to him, my name is David benson I used to come over to your house when I was out of school. I just want to let you guys know and rob know that he will truly be missed. I know fs I will miss him because when I moved here as a freshman in high school and rob was still in middle school. He was the one of the very first kids to walk up to me and say what’s up. If there anything I learned from him would be how to be a country farm red neck but in good funny way. I have nothing to say bad about rob he was a amazing kid and freind when we would hang out. And I’m really sorry for your guys lost I can’t even imagine how hard it has to be. My step brother died and I had to watch my mom go thru this same situation. But if anything is real it’s that he is in a better place right and we’ll all end up there sometime. Again I’m really sorry for your guys loss.

From the very 1st day Rob came into our family we knew God blessed us with a special gift from above!!😇 We were proud to have him carry on the Kjelstad name, we use to call him our “Miracle Baby” We enjoyed having our 1st little boy in the family!!! Rob loved tractors right from the start & he always said he was going to be a farmer when he got “BIG” I always called him “My Farm-All Boy” I’m sure going to miss that “FARMER BOY” I’m very blessed to be his Godmother, I prayed for him many many nights!! Rob had his Faith in God & because of that I know I will see him again in Heaven & There Everything Will Be Better!!! I Love You Buddy💙 You will always be in my heart❤️
