My sweet friend, you have been taken from us way to soon! I still cannot begin to express (as many others I’m sure) how bizarre it is to think you are no longer here with us. To much to fathom. But like everyone else who knew you and loved you, what I do have are to many memories to count of our childhood memories together. Memories that still make me chuckle aloud! You really had a special way of lighting up a room and although as we grew older and apart you could say, it’s obvious you never lost that ability to shine for others!!
Robyn, you are an angel and will be missed by so many! Shine on girl❤️

You weren’t just my friend, you were part of my family, Robyn. We shared more adventures, laughs, and deep conversations, than I could ever count over the past 25yrs.
I loved that we always elevated each other and I’ll miss that true rare friendship we shared. Believe me, it wasn’t always perfect, but we always were drawn back to one another. I truly believe that we were meant to be in each other’s lives.
If you were still alive, I might not have realized that the whole “live each day like it’s your last” mindset is legit. That I need to treasure every moment while I still can and tell my family I love them as much as possible.
As much as I miss you, I’m thankful for what you taught me while you were here, and what you’re continuing to teach me now that you’re gone.
I’ll never forget you, Robyn! I promise to share with Charlie and Halina everything about the person you were. I’ll always love you!
R.I.P. my one of a kind, ride or die!! ❤️

Robyn, rest in piece and be assured that all who love you will carry on with heartfelt memories of you. I know you mostly thru your mom however what I remember most when meeting you was your beautiful smile and your big heart. I remember when you were pregnant with Charlie and how proud you were. Your struggles are now behind you. I am saddened for all the people in recovery that will miss your coaching.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family. God bless you.

Too soon! I'm so sad...I have never laughed so hard so many times with anyone! I'm so sorry you are gone and we were not able to reconcile and talk about our good old days. Life took us our seperate ways but you always will have a special place in my heart. My heart breaks for our loss but knows you are partying with all those family members that passed before you. I will never forget you my friend, and all the "firsts" we experienced together. I just wish we could have hugged it out before it was too late. I love you ❤️️
