:Tho she be but little, she is fierce." Oh Robin, we in the equestrian community will miss you! Your willingness to help anyone, your sheer determination, your expert will all be missed. But most of all, your positive attitude and your ready smile, your love of animals and your strong faith. You fought a valiant fight and surprised so many....except those of us who knew you.

My one regret is not having known Robin longer and better. Her contribution to the St. Richard RCIA process was spiritually rich and strengthening. Her time with us was too short but oh so beautiful. My condolences to all who loved her.
