We’ve been neighbors to the Robinson’s for “32” years and will greatly miss them both. We can still hear Mr. Robinson riding his tractor over to his pond, behind our fence, to feed his fish. We had many good conversations over the back fence. We also enjoyed taking cookies to them at Christmas and singing carols to them with our grandsons. Even though we interrupted their show, Gunsmoke, they always welcomed us with smiles. They were good neighbors and good people.
