VICKIE UPDATE: Thursday October 5, 2017. R.I.P.
Our Vickie was picked up by our Heavens Angles at 2:12am this morning. The nurses gave her what turned out to be her final bed bath. Minutes after the nurses finished and left the room, my honey, the love of my life for 19 years and mother to Jay and Perye, experienced her last breath. Her transition was peaceful.
For all those that sent Birthday Cards and Interacted with my Vickie Facebook posts this past year, THANK YOU! Thank you for caring. Thank you for supporting. Thank you for helping.
Thank you for playing a part and role in our/her Life’s Journey. I, along with her son Jay and daughter Perye had the great privilege and honor of taking care of her at her most vulnerable time.
I’ll write more in the future. For now, I feel this quote below by Hunter Thompson best describes my darling and life partner Vickie Pieper.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
― Hunter S. Thompson
I think Vickie truly lived this quote, fully!
Vickie requested not to have a formal service in a church. Enstead, wishes to have a celebration and party.
Details will be forthcoming.
Love Robby & Vickie
Playing Music For All The Cancer Patients in The Room!
Vickie was diagnosed in late August 2017 with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma. In October she started treatments at the Comprehensive Cancer Center in Las Vegas.
In early December 2017, I asked if I could play for all the patients. Permission was needed from corporate. Two weeks later I started a regular performance schedule on Tuesday and Fridays. These are the day my honey Vickie gets her treatment.
Just wanted to let you all know, it's going well. So well in fact, Im getting new song request every week from the patients! This week I need to learn " Strangers In The Night" !
That's all for now. Now it's your turn to go share your talents with those in need.
Keep Being Brilliant!
PS - The photo includes me, Vickie, ands her favorite nurse Patty!

Thank You In Advance,
It Has Been a Busy Summer, Full of Adventure, Health Issues, Sporting Events and Birthdays!
June 4, 2016 Went To Emergency Room with Blood Pressure 201/110. June 6th had An Emergency Stent for 90% blockage in my right artery. They released me June 7th and I felt great! July 5-10th I was the official photographer for the International Mixed Martial Arts World Championships 2016.
August 1st, started feeling crappy again, shortness of breath, sever headaches ect.... August 17th celebrated my birthday! Then went to Emergency room again August 21st. Turns out I caught an Pneumonia. September 3rd went back to emergency room because I developed a bad rash over my body and my throat was closing up and had trouble breathing. And honestly I was scared. Turns out I had a severe reaction to the antibiotics I was taking for the Pneumonia! In the midst of all that, my honey Vickie has been experiencing her own health challenges.
Am I complaining? No, just sharing the roller coaster of a summer it has been!
So, How Has Your Summer Been???
I will say this, I am so GRATEFUL for all the support and prayers I received via Email, Text, Facebook and phone calls! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
As we enter the fall, kids go back to school, Apple has another launch coming up, guitar gigs are scheduled and the leaves will start falling from the trees!
With that being said: Focus on the good in your life. Look for the best in people. Be the encourager, not the discourager. Hold on and hold tight for the Fall Season is just beginning!
Keep Being Brilliant,
PS- Just got the Hospital bill - $136,451! Thank God I have good insurance. MY portion is only about $8000. I may have to do a GoFundMe Fund Raiser...
