To Pat's family, my sincere condolences.
44 years ago, Jack and Pat, Paul and Pearl and Mona and I started a table at the American Legion for dining and dancing. Since Mona made the reservations, it became known as the 'Robinson table'. Many years of wonderful people and wonderful memories and I am the only one of the original group left but it is still called the Robinson table even if I'm not there.

Pat is now peacefully at rest but we all will remember and miss her.
