To Jon and my Mutrux cousins,

Even though I was on the periphery of her world, I was drawn to Robin as a truly good and beautiful person, and am unutterably sorry to hear she has left us...though not without leaving her indelible mark on our hearts.

My condolences to the family of Robin Worley:
I worked with Robin for a short time at DHE and she was such a delightful person. It is sad to hear of her passing but know that she is ok. No more suffering, no more pain. You all loved her but Jesus loved her best, so he called her home to take her rest. May her soul rest in peace.
