I will miss seeing your smiling face at Jim and Zina's gatherings. You and Angie have been a part of the Robinson family for a lot of years. That will not change.

Angie please know that the Louers are thinking of you. Take care of yourself! I know it is difficult to think of yourself at a time like this but you know Jim would want you to be as ok as you can be.

Our condolences to the whole family especially you and Tyler. Dunarro and I send hugs.
