Dear Bob, Denver, and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Robbi was a great friend and neighbor. I first met Robbi about 15 years ago when I was selling CDs and magazine subscriptions for a school fundraiser. I was so excited to have such a cool neighbor. A few years later, she gave me my first babysitting job. I have such good memories of Robbi and she will definitely be missed. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love Always, Michelle Jarrard

Bob and Denver, Harry and I are so sad for your loss and are praying for both of you. There are no words to express our sorrow to you and while there is nothing anybody can say to ease the pain, I want to tell you how much Robbi meant to me. In the past 12 years, since we left the lake,there hasn't been a single day where I didn't think about Robbi. She taught me everything I know about travel and without her, I wouldn't be where I am today in the travel industry. My Mom told y'all during her "Chemo Limo" Days how much we appreciated my time with Robbi and Bob, she meant it. Others went to travel school, I went to Robbi and hands down, I could book somebody under the table and never look back. The experience and what I learned from her is immeasurable. Robbi has and will always continue to be a part of me. She is in every flight,every hotel,every car rental,every package, and every cruise that I book. I can still hear her say "Mahallo, Jennifer", like she did when I was heading out for my fam trip to Oahu. Simply stated, the "Jamaica Queen" is my hero. We love you both. Harry and Jennifer Collins

Bob & Denver, I am so sorry to hear of Robbie's death. Robbie was one of the first people I met when I began working at the Greene County Chamber and I will always remember her friendliness and beautiful smile. She was such a wonderful example of a woman who was a success in her work and personal life. May God wrap his loving arms around you during this difficult time.

We were so saddened to learn of Robbie's untimely death. Lakeside Companies booked many trips for us over the last few years and I know that the travel industry will never be the same without Robbie. As the travel industry has a void, I know the families void and pain is far greater. You are all in our thoughts and prayers always.

Although I didn't know Robbi personally, my husband Robert was a recipient of the wonderful service given to cancer patients, and for that, I am grateful. I know she will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her, and I know Bob will continue the wonderful service he give to cancer patients. He and his family will be in my prayers.
