Jan 2.17 from Robert F. Mote Jr.:
So very sorry for your loss. I don't know if you remember me much but Carl was my Dads close friend from childhood. I remember visiting your family and Scott and Kristen when I was a young boy. I remember how much of a beautiful family you all have. I hope that God has eased your pain and given you comfort in knowing she is in a good place with him now. If you see this message you may email anytime you would like. God Bless.

My sincere condolences to Carl and family. I just learned of her passing today. I knew Robyn and was friends with her in Castile, NY. We lived "next door" to one another ( a vacant lot between our houses). I so wish I had stayed in touch with her over the years. The last time I saw her was when she visited me in North Chili when my oldest son was a baby.
