Dear Tim, Ed, and Bob,

As well as all who loved Robin...

We are saddened more than we can say to hear of Robin's passing. Unfailingly kind, funny, compassionate, encouraging and loving, she will be sorely missed, and the world will be a darker place without the shining light of her smile. For more than twenty-five years we have loved Robin, having met her through Viv and her loving nieces, Maeve and Molly. We have admired her strength, warmth and the extraordinary love she had for her family.
Please know that our love and prayers go out to you, her family - the focal point of her life.
Sincerely, if there is any way we may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to let us know.
Much, much love, and neverending prayers to you - to all who loved Robin -
Robin and Alex Owens

Robin and I first met at Thalhimer's department store, where we both worked in the late 1970's. I always admired her way of dressing, so elegant and classy! We had such great laughs whenever we were together, and those times often included Viv in the early days. We also shared the Navy wife experience, with husbands often away; so we kept each other company! She was full of personality, and I will never forget her, or her brilliant smile!
My deep sympathies go to you, Ed, Tim and Bob, and your wonderfully supportive extended family. God bless you all at this difficult time. with love, Sherri

I knew Robin through her twin sister Vivienne. When we lost Vivienne, I got to know Robin better. She was smart, funny, and had a wonderful heart. She was devoted to her family and my deepest sympathy goes out to them at this very sad and difficult time. We lost Robin way too soon and she will be missed by all who knew her.
