From Carl Hiaasen, noted Treasure Coast author and columnist: I am devastated and heartsick to confirm the loss of my wonderful brother Rob today in the mass shooting in the newsroom at the Annapolis Capital Gazette.

Rob was an editor and columnist at the paper, and one of the most gentle and funny people I’ve ever known.

He spent his whole gifted career as a journalist, and he believed profoundly in the craft and mission of serving the public’s right to know the news.

We called him Big Rob because he was so tall, but it was his remarkable heart and humor that made him larger than all of us.

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers tonight.

Hug your loved ones like there’s no tomorrow.
