    My love and sincere prayers for my Uncle Robin, Aunt Evelyn and their beautiful family. It has been many, many years since I played as a child on the pastures of the Griffin ranch. I will never forget that wonderful experience and the loving man who led his family every day in such a fine manner. I love everyone and you remain in my frequent prayers during this difficult time. I'll miss you uncle Robin. Rest easy with our Lord. Love: Dora & family

    Robin was a very good easy going man with a keen sense of humor. They opened there home to us when Sheila & I got married in 1992. They also included our family in many memorable Thanksgivings & Christmas gatherings which will be in our memories forever. RIP Robin
