One of my greatest highlights of traveling from Missouri to Louisiana when visiting my friend Robin was to pop in for a visit to see her grandma. She was so full of life and always eager to share stories of her younger years which I thoroughly enjoyed. She made you feel like a old friend sitting around her kitchen table laughing and reminiscing. God speed dear lady, you will be missed until we see each other again. Lois Wright
