    I worked with Robin at Lincoln Elementary School and she was one of our best teachers. She was very devoted to all her students and showed them much love and compassion. She was a great co-worker and the true meaning of a lady. My deepest sympathy to al her family and many friends.

    To the Family of Robin, my sincere condolences for your loss. The pain and the sense of loss that death brings can be overwhelming without the help our Creator can provide. As you cope with your loss, may you also find comfort in knowing that soon God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including death (Revelation 21:3,4). May the words from God’s word the Bible give you comfort now and strong hope for the future. Deepest sympathy

    We all wanted Robin to be healed and for it to be used for the Glory of God, Today after all I heard from just a few of the many she has touched, it is Obvious Her Whole Life IS a witness to the Glory of God !!!

    I’m not going to say I’m sorry for your loss, instead I’m going to say how extremely happy I am for all of you to have had such a close relationship with such an amazing woman. I was only blessed to have known her because of Breast Cancer first. I passed on a Cancer Support Gift to her after my battle six months earlier. Her whole attitude and smile let me know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Breast Cancer had met its match. Then we talked quite a bit this past Thanksgiving and Christmas at Results Therapy. We both happened to have outside aches and pains that needed therapy. I hate now, that I have a feeling the neck pain was more than just that. Hind sight always 20/20. The main reason I had to write is to re-confirm what I’m sure you know, but can never hear enough…your wife/mom could not have talked about the blessings her family any more! We never had a conversation without her bragging about someone’s accomplishments! She was always determined she would win this battle…I know she tried with all her might for each of you, and for herself. I know she is in a better place and is in peace now. The best thing you can do for her is to also find peace, because I know that is what she wants for each of you! God Bless!

    What a legacy to have when you go an meet your maker. the blessed are the ones that really lived with Robin day in and out. We have all been blessed by Robin in one way or another. My daughter who did not know Robin personally or does not remember her has worked with many students that Robin has had and in the impression Robin has left on the kids has been passed on to others. I do pray for the family during this time of sorrow. the service was beautiful and Milo did great with humor to bring as Robin always did. May God be with you during this time and as time passes. Cannot wait to see her again on the other side.

    Milo and family, you continue to be in my prayers. What a difficult journey you have had. We celebrate that Robin lived such a wonderful life and was such a blessing to others.
