Please watch sweet Friends:
Robin, Your legacy will live on forever.
I will not say to your loved ones that you are no more but that I am so thankful that you were.
You are never gone.
Some of his words:
“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”
“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.”
“Death is nature’s way of saying, “Your table’s ready.”
It was once said:
Death is only passing through God’s other door.
No doubt Robin, you will have them all laughing on the Other Side.
