Dear Family of Robin:
I had the privilege of being Robinā€˜s roommate when we were undergraduate students at Penn state. Robin always had an outgoing and fun energy and we created so many happy memories together. I also had the opportunity to live with Janet and the two of them were so opposite that we always used to tease them. Robin loved to go to football games and we had. So much fun going to games and then continuing our rebel rousing into the night Robin like to have fun but she was also a dedicated student and I was always amazed how she could ace every exam without having to study multiple hours.

I am so very sorry for your loss I pray that her memory will be a blessing.
