I worked with Robin at Unaka for 2 years as the Speech Therapist for her students. She was always welcoming and kind. My prayers are with the family as they say their earthly goodbyes. May you look forward to the day you can be reunited with her in heaven. May God wrap his loving arms of love, comfort and peace around you.

Aunt Robin,
You have always been so sweet and full of life and laughter. I can't believe that you are gone but, I'm glad that you are finally free from all of your sickness and pain. I hope it brings comfort for all of us to remember that you are with Grandma and Tina again.

I had the pleasure of knowing Robin through church many years ago. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever know, her bright smile, quick laugh were so engaging. I hadn't see Robin in several years but kept up with her through Facebook. One of God's angels went home and I pray that Andy and Justin and family will find peach and comfort through God during this time of this incredible loss. Rest well and rejoice Robin.

Robin and I were friends in high school. We reconnected on Facebook during her final years. I remember her as kind, caring, and full of enthusiasm and good humor. To me, she will always be 18 and full of health and vitality. My thoughts are with her family at this sad time.

I have known Robin for 35 years. Robin is my late stepfather Floyd's niece and this is how we met. We lived within a block of each other, we were pregnant at the same time, and we had a lot of fun raising our children. Robin, Andy, and Justin are the nicest people I have had the privilege of knowing in my lifetime. Robin was always kind, cheerful and would help anyone that needed help. My heart and prayers are with Andy, Justin and his wife and children at this time. May Robin rest in peace with her daughter, Tina.
