"Hi Robin
Im so sad that you got taken so young. I will always have Squaw Valley memories with you missy.  You always made me smile and laugh and you were always happy and friendly. I know I have not seen you in years.... but I miss your soul on this earth!"

"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. ~Barbara Alpert

This was Robyn and I, in a nutshell. Growing up there were days I would have traded her for a puppy or even a cookie. Even on bad days, I had this belief that I was put on the earth to take care of her. In the end, Robyn gave me so much more than I gave her. She strengthened me with her challenging ways. She gave me courage when I didn't think I had any, She made me laugh when I felt like crying. She was there for me on my darkest days, staying positive, knowing exactly what to do and say and when to stay quiet. When I was lonely, she was always there. She taught me to fight for what I believed in and to stand up for myself, even when it meant standing up to her. She forgave quickly and loved with her whole heart and never, ever missed an opportunity to laugh. She taught me the fine art of sarcasm and the vocabulary of sailors. And since I couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time, she was also there to teach me humility.  She taught me that fashion is a state of mind, animal prints are always in style, perfume and lip gloss are just as important as clothing and even tall, clumsy girls can wear stilettos. And last, but just as important, if the music is good, dance.

Robby left me with with a million memories, each of them beautiful, each of them priceless and profound. I don’t know when I will see her again, but until then, I owe her the debt of a happy life, well lived. Just like I promised."

"Really Where do you start? Robyn was All of the above; Beautiful - Inside n out, Funny, Sweet, Fashionista, Biatch, Sweetheart, Smartypants n mouth, Caring, Loving and most of all ROBYN was the greatest Friend anyone could Ever wish for. She would do anything for anyone who needed help and she would be the first one to "kick you in the butt" if you were slacking. She would make anyone laugh and she would make anyone feel special!! She Loved elephants and when I asked her why she said "cuz I know my mom was one in a previous life" and I asked her what she meant by that. Her answer was: My mom is very protective and caring about her family and she's calm  but forceful. She's got a huge heart and she never forgets :). Robyn was one of the Best and Most caring person anyone could only have been soo lucky to have met!! I'm very blessed that I had the chance to meet her and to spend a lot of silly laughs with her and to call her my Best Friend........Love n Miss You my "Honey Bunny"!!"

"Oh my Robbie roo... I miss you like crazy. My mind feels foggy sad and confused. I keep hoping to wake up and realize we were all in a dream, living a different life, other than our own. I'm not religious by a long shot but you were an awesome great person and you were needed. I just so wish all of us could check in on you and give you a hug. But I know that you know we are here. I'm so sad, but I know you are in a fantastic and beautiful place. And you are patiently waiting for the day that your friends and family get to join you in it. Love you momma!"
