Looking back to my first encounter, I recall Robin, eLeri, Baroness of Concordia, where, presiding over court, her quick wit and banter with Baron Emerson kept the populous entertained and gave me a reason to participate in the SCA. I later discovered Robin was fellow chemist at the DEC where our paths occasionally crossed; I always felt richer for our encounter.

Robin exemplified grace and joy, faced her challenges with courage, optimism and hope, and despite her illness, always offered a welcoming smile, a laugh and comfort to others in need.

May Robin's soul be forever blessed. We will miss her.

I wrote this to my colleages and friends at work, (DEC), where I had the priviledge of reconnecting with Robin through the last several years. She was a kind, sweet soul. Taken from us too early, but I know she is free of her pain, and smiling at us, as we think of her today.

Though I wish I had known Robin (eLeri) better, I have always admired her grace and friendliness. She was never too busy for a warm greeting, and her genuine smile lit up the room. She was a fine example of courtesy and nobility, and I will miss her. My sincere sympathy to all who loved her.

I remember many years ago, when we were in our 20's Robin came with two other friends to Syracuse to see a Rolling Stones concert. I was living there at the time and had everyone back to my apartment for breakfast after the show. I made omelets seasoned with, amongst other ingredients, mustard and dill . Years later at a WOR, Robin told me that she often added those two spices to her omelets and thought of me every time

Robin was always quit with a smile even if she was advising me not to go through with a bonehead plan. Working with Robin was a joy and her light fun personality made the chores seem like rewards.She always gave me good advice. I will miss her. I am absolutely better for having known her and she lived her life to the fullest.

Sleep tight Robin.

I truly believe that I am a better person for knowing her. She inspired everyone with her wit and her smile.
