    to the Stately family, My heart is broken, just like yours, I loved Rob like a brother, He was always at our home when Truman was here, they were like brothers, and my girls thought he was their uncle, although not by blood. He was their uncle. We would sit around playing cards and watch tv. I would go to bed, they would still be watching tv, and in the morning Rob would be waking up from the couch!! I will never ever forget those times. they were the best. October is a very sad month for me as you know this is the month Trudi died also. he was there for us when we went through that devastating ordeal. He even went with us to Minneapolis with us when we had to go down there. Him and George were there every minute and we really appreciated that. And now they are all together again! I am sure they were very happy to see each other! Sending you my love and deepest sympathy from my heart to yours.

    From the early AIM days to the present. Our lives intersected and we ended up sharing grandchildren together. I couldn’t ask for better grands than you and Robin. You and Robin were there when Char was born and You and Robin were there when Chars son was born.
    The relatives in the next world are awaiting your arrival and there will be great joy and celebration when you arrive. A good journey my friend!!
    To Robin and children, prayers and good thoughts come your way. I am so sorry for your loss. Your husband, Dad, Grandpa will be remembered always in a good way.

    Robin will be missed by many people, he was a happy person when I would see “Robinski”, that’s what I always called him. He always had a smile and kind words. I will miss seeing him around Redby in his Chevy pick-up holding up traffic.

    We just read about “Robin’s” death and are so sorry to hear about it. We ran into Robin a couple of years back, and she told us about Leonard’s health not being good. But our lives have taken us on a different track the past several years, and intention is replaced by memories.
    We always enjoyed our visits with Robin and Robin, and our kids still talk about the time they and their kids spent much of and afternoon taking turns riding their pig around the pen. He was a good man and I considered him a friend.
    Our family’s sympathies to all.
