    Robbie you will be greatly missed by my entire family. When we moved to TN you were our dear neighbor. You became like a grandma to all of us. You were a very special lady and because of that you will always be remembered. I know you fought hard but that is over now. I remember our last visit and how you talked about loved ones who passed on earlier. Now you can reunite with them. To the family we send our prayers!
