  1. I am so sorry to learn of this. I remember Robin from school, dhe had the greatest sense of humor! Her kind smile and quiet and gentle way was always something I admired in her.

  2. I am sorry to hear of Robin’s early passing. I appreciate your friendship during our teen years! We had a great time hanging out in your upstairs bedroom listening to Carol King, smoking cigarettes, then riding your mini bike down the railroad tracks! Fly free, Robin!
