I have fond memories of Robin from HS at BH-BL and am shocked to learn of her passing. My heart goes out to her family and deepest condolences. She is now watching over us all.

Sweet Lady, take your ease in the arms of the Angels. You've earned your rest. We, whose lives you touched, are better for the knowing.
A more fun & graceful woman, I have yet to meet. Please accept the tears that are shed. Remember, just how much you are valued & loved.
Til we may meet again...Merry part.

You are my Diva, my Goddess, and person I want to be when I grow up. You will forever be the positive voice in my head and for that I can never repay you. I hope that you are dancing with the Goddess.

I only knew Robin as eLeri, through SCA events and correspondence, and every one of my memories is of fun conversations on many an interesting topic. A brilliant mind matched with a sweet disposition.

Our world shone more brightly for her presence, but what can such loveliness pass into but greater loveliness still.

My deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.

Robin literally taught me courtesy, and not just by her example. We debated the term itself, and I have come to cherish her definition: gladly assuming the mantle of responsibility for putting others at their ease.

In the many years following those first talks, I watched her brave many trials and tragedies unflinchingly. There was nothing theoretical in her commitment to her values and her community. And more, she had a rare gift for grace and loving - a gift that

I did not know Robin well or for very long but she made me feel like a friend. For the time that I knew her, I was touched by her kindness. I never heard her complain about her situation or say an unkind word about anyone. My deepest condolences go out to her family and friends. I know she will be greatly missed.

My heart is aching for your loss. I wrote Robin a letter that likely came too late, but I hope it brings some comfort to Tom and her family. For those lucky enough to have known her, Robin will always be in our hearts, smiling her warm smile and making us laugh with her wicked sense of humor. Be at peace, Robin, and may the angels watch over you always.

Where do I begin... we shared some many special times in high school. Field Hockey, long hours on Sweetman Rd., a million cats running around your house, fritos and chocolate frosting, endless teenage secrets,Spartan Spotlight, your visits to me at college. The time and distance drifted us apart, but I will always cherish your friendship and beautiful memories. Rest in peace.

"Eyes are the mirror of the soul." Robin's eyes always smiled first and served to light the exchange. The light is out, the exchange over, and the day is dimmer because of it. The memory lives and lights the darkness of her absence. My life is a better place for having stood in the warmth of her light.

I first met Mistress eLeri several years ago through the SCA ~ she was an amazing woman then with her warm giving spirit, quick wit and generous smile. Since then I was blessed to meet her at several events and work with her on a few SCA events. The more you got to know her the more wondrous she was. She is truly inspirational and I feel blessed that I was lucky enough to know her. May the gods hold
