I met Robin while working at the Kal. County Family Court in Kalamazoo. She was such a sweet and kind person. So very genuine. I would often stop by her desk where she would be diligently working and we would visit about Jimmy and Clio. She was so well liked by everyone. I will remember her kindness and gentle heart. Robin

I met Robin while working at the Dental Office of Dr. Dan Crockett and Dr. Cathy Pike. She was always so pleasant and when she would come in she always had her very trusted companion "Jimmy" with her. He was a wonderful seeing eye dog and loving companion for her. He would wag his tail and perk up every time we looked at him, but we were not allowed to pet him because he was "on duty". She always knew when we cheated though! Robin loved to discuss books or talk about what was happening in the world around us. I would pick her up for appointments and take her home from time to time, and it was my honor to do so. She was always grateful, but it was I who was grateful for the opportunity and the privilege of knowing her over the years and helping her in some small way. Robin will be dearly missed by everyone who were blessed to have known her. My condolences of course go out to her parents, Ralph and Charlotte and to her whole family. Prayers and Hugs, God Bless all of you with the comfort of His love. {Judy Marker}

Robin and I were both students at the Harold & Grace Upjohn School, when we were young. We reconnected as adults, and were able to get to know each other again, sharing fun memories and lots of laughter. My sincere condolences to Robin's family and friends.

We remember Robin when she sang in the Chancel Choir at First United Methodist Church for a few years with her then seeing eye dog at her feet in the choir loft. She brought a tape recorder to choir rehearsals to record the anthems or special music to facilitate her learning them. She also used the Braille hymnbooks. Robin was a warm person and well liked in the choir. When she lived in her own house on Edgemoor, we were among several people who rotated picking her up for choir rehearsals and church.

Robin was one of the most beautiful people I have met on life's journey. She was genuine and loving. I feel blessed that she crossed my path.
