We all loved Robin for all that he did for us over the years. He was an amazing mechanic and problem solver but most of all a great teacher and an inspiration to all of us. To this day we still use all that he taught us in life. He made is all part of what we are today.
You can smile because he life,
You can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
You can be full of the love that you shared,
You can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
Thank you and God bless Robin and you all.
In memory of Robin there has been a Memorial Fund set up on the BC Cancer Web Site.
