    God seems to always take the good people first. Way too young. Robin was very enjoyable person and loved by all when I worked at Frito-Lay. May her spirit surround all those who loved and were loved by her. There is a way better place for all of us although it is very difficult to understand when we are still on this earth to carry on. May the angels wrap their arms around those grieving. God bless her family and show them strength in this difficult time.

    It was an honor to meet and care for Robin and her family. She always brightened the room with her smile and warm personality. Even at her sickest, she always asked how others were doing. Thinking of you, Robin, and your wonderful family.

  17. Mike Young September 2, 2013 at 9:44 pm

    Hi mom. I just want to say that even though Kristi and are no longer married you were still always there for me. You would give me advice when I needed it or just some one to talk to. You have a heart of gold. You never made it feel like I was no longer a part of your family. So I guess what I’m trying to say is: I love you mom. And you will be greatly missed.

  20. Carol &Mike Cooper September 3, 2013 at 3:14 am

    Randy and Family,
    We cannot imagine the heartbreak that you are all going through. We loved Robin. She had such a big heart. She would put others before herself. She loved to celebrate life by baking birthday cakes for the people that she worked with. Robin was from a very rare breed, she was unique. We would have to write a book to tell all of the wonderful qualities that she possessed. Our prayers are with you and the family. May God give you His peace now and in the days to come. We love you!!!

    My dearest friend Randy…you were completely loved by Robin with her whole heart & soul, and what a huge one she had at that!! Her smile told the story of this. The battle for Robin is over now. Her body is new, one without pain. She is in her “perfect heavenly place”, one that has been prepared for her. Robin was a strong, forgiving, selfless person. She was respected & loved by so many people & will be missed by all that she came in contact with. There is no good time to have the one’s we love leave us, however…it isn’t in our control. Robin fought with all she had, as she did in all things in her life here on earth so very well.
    To Robin’s family, I pray you find the comfort & peace that only comes by God. Help one another thru these difficult day’s to come.
    Randy, Robin will be walking with you, helping you along the way. Right now she’s busy soaring with the heavenly angel’s!! How cool is that! Reach out to people & allow them to help you Randy get thru this daily, 4ever change.
    Blessing’s to Robin’s entire family. And God Bless you Robin, thank you for being my friend.
