    I am so sorry to hear of Robin’s passing. He was my childhood friend that I will never forget. My deepest condolences to his family. You are all in my good thoughts and prayers. I had not seen Robin for many years and when I finally saw him he was going by the name “Bob.” I was always use to calling him Robin, so I combined his new name with his old and I called him “Bobin.” “Bobin” and I were partners in crime when we were four and five. My family lived across from the DMV on 24th Street in Sac. DMV was under construction at the time. “Bobin”, his brother Raymond and I were playing ball. Our ball went over the chain link fence at DMV. We were trying to climb the chain link fence to get the ball when a cop car pulled up. The cop got out and took out his billy club and asked what we were doing. We hid under my bed. I hope my little story brought a smile to your face and a happy thought of “Bobin.” My deepest sympathy to Sherri, Sandy, Sydney and families. Love you!
