    I met Robynn in High School. Her smile what big and bright. She had many friends and it breaks my heart knowing she was so sick and not able to recover. I have enjoyed reading all the posts. She grew into a wonderful loving caring smart lady and I can tell she was a dedicated parent. My thoughts & prayers go out to her family and friends. RIP special lady.

    I am so sorry for your loss. To the family at home and the work family, I can just imagine the sorrow you may feel. I met Robynn when my daughter, who is partially deaf, had a legal matter to deal with and because of her disability Robynn took it upon herself to talk to the judge because my daughter did not have an interpreter. She had a very caring heart. She tried to help us in every way. The smile on her face brightened up the day and gave us assurance that everything was okay. We are so blessed to have had her as a part of our lives. You don’t have to interact with a person everyday, but that one meeting can change your life. I’m sure that she has been a blessing to all of those she has met. What an angel!
