    I love you Mom, you touched so many lives and I was blessed to have you in mine. Be at peace and know you were so loved.

    Words can’t describe the way I feel right now. Aunt Robin was a one of a kind, one of the most caring people I have ever met. Whenever I needed someone to talk to she was there. Advice she was there. God blessed me by being born with her being my aunt. Although my grandma passed when I was young, I had one in her. We all joked and called her my auntie granny. At the end of the day she was loved by so many. And so much by me. Thank you for being there for me through everything. I will forever love you. Even thought I can’t talk to you physically, I can get down on my knees bow my head and talk to you. Make sure papa, grandma, and uncle George are doing alright for me! ❤️

    I love you so much. I have so many memories of our life. You were my Sister, my Best friend, my counselor and my protector. I’m gonna cherish all our memories. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be here today without all your love and faith in me. I miss you Robbie. Till we meet again know how much I love you.

  • Sharon Gussman-Peterson

    Oh how i will miss Robin. Robin was always willing to listen and jump in whenever needed. She always had a way of making you feel better. I will miss the late night gab fests. I am glad she is out of pain. Prayers sent for her Husband Jim and her boys.

    Robin shared being the middle child with me out of 6 siblings. It wasn’t easy but she showed tremendous strength and fortitude to get through some very difficult times. She was joyful and loving and cared very much for her family and she showed it throughout her life. I will miss my “middle” sister and thank God for all the good memories. Love you Robin 💓

    Robin was the sweetest, kind, and
    Most loving sister. She never said a harsh word to any of her siblings. I miss you so much. All my love.
