Brent Boise – I loved your mother. Along with my Aunt Carol, your mother was such a part of my child hood Summertime. I always enjoyed my time at your family home, Robin was always a take no shit, strong woman. We always walked a straight line when she told us. Ron, Ross, Randy, Jackie, Uncle Jack, Aunt Carol, I always have fond memories of my time with you all. Rest in peace Robin.

Much love.

Robin was a great person. She was our neighbor when I was growing up and she always was there to help us and treated us like her own family. She will be truly missed and never forgotten. Rest in peace Robin.
