I remember Robin coming over to our house on the north side of Milwaukee when I was.a kid. She went to high school with my sister who always referred to her as “my best friend Robin” to distinguish her from other people named Robin that she knew. We always laugh about how she always had to say “my best friend Robin”. I would say “I know she is your best friend,”. She always referred to her that way. Having a best friend for so long is rare and was cherished by my sister Cheri.
Cheri and Robin were like Laverne and Shirley. One somewhat outspoken and out going while the other soft spoken and shy. So cute to see them in action. Robin always made me feel calm and secure when she was around. She always had something complimentary to say, didn’t talk bad about other people around me and always had a warm, inviting smile. She didn’t say much, but when she did, it was impactful. I will surely miss seeing her and I know it will leave a void in my sister’s heart as well as my own. It is hard to come across people with integrity, honesty and real concern about others and it was great to know someone who had these qualities and was truly a joy to be around. Robin will be missed I am sure by everyone she has encountered in life. We need more people like her in our world. Love you Robin!
