To the Robinson family, Mr. Robinson, Annette, Randy, Butch, and Debra, it's been way too many years. I remember how Mr. Robinson would come home and sit at the table while us kids would play. I also remember the first time he was ever hurt in the line of duty and how he would exercise his hurt hand and I would ask him questions to which he would always give me a straight answer. He actually was a hero to me after my father. I missed him and was so very saddened by his death. RIP Mr. Robinson and God bless you and the Robinson family; wherever they may be.
