    I did not know Robin well, but it was obvious that she had a big heart and wanted to give back. She was a member of the Pennsylvania Highlands Community College advisory board for Blair County and we always appreciated her guidance and support. I wish I had more time to get to know her. Rest in Peace. Steve Nunez, President of PHCC

    There is no one with a bigger heart than Robin. She was a good and faithful friend for 65 years. We shared so many wonderful memories growing up on 28th Avenue. For MANY years, Robin, Marcy, my parents, sister and I went to the shore. We lived for the day we would all pile into the car and go to the beach. I am so thankful for those memories. There was no better friend than Robin. She always showed up when times were tough...she just knew she was needed. Heaven has gained one incredible angel. No doubt, the Rainbow Bridge was crowded the day she arrived; the tails were wagging. Rest easy my friend. I love you.
