Hi Uncle Jim and Kris,

I don't have one specific memory, but just that sometimes when you guys came into town for Thanksgiving, I'd escape the chaos of the holidays by sitting in the lavender room with Robin for a few moments and watching her sort through her beads or her little knick knacks that she would have. She was always so sweet and will be missed. I love you guys so much! Wellington and I are sending you all of our love from across the pond!
