    I'm so saddened by this loss for the Robinson family. My prayer for each of them is that they feel the loving arms of The Father around them loving and comforting them through this difficult time and in the days forward. I myself will always remember Billy's sweet spirit and that beautiful smile. "Life is but a stopping place, a pause in what's to be. A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, different paths along the way, we all are meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay...Our destination is a place far greater than we know, for some the journey's quicker, for some the journey's slow. And when the journey finally ends, we'll claim a great reward. To find an everlasting peace, together with the Lord."

    Quinton, Abbi and family, We are so sorry to hear of the accident and the loss of your dad. We were neighbors for a lot of years when the two of you were growing up. He was a good man and we thought a lot of him. We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

    Billy will forever hold a special place in our hearts. He was an amazing talented, honest, God fearing man who we were blessed to call friend for many years. He could always make life’s hardest times seem more bearable using his quick wit and humor to lighten the atmosphere. We were truly honored to have walked through many of life’s good times as well as the hard times beside him. Billy was never intimidated to share his faith and because of that we know without a shadow of doubt he is home with Jesus and he is finally free. < John 14:2
