David,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Middlesex County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher Job in Law Enforcement then that of a Corrections/Detention Officer.

You are only known and remembered by my father and myself through photographs and letters. We were both stripped of ever having the chance to know you, and that plays a toll every day. As we go through another round of emotional turmoil and generational heartache due to that individual trying to once again manipulate the system, we also carry you with us as high as we all can. We fight to this day for you and for our amazing family. I am so proud to be your lineage, and we will move forward from this once again. RIP, Great-Grandfather. Love always.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
God Bless

Although I never knew David Robinson, my parents certainly did. My father, Raymond Lawrence, was a dear friend David and the rest of the Robinson family, and went into the jail that night with David's brother. This event on Mothers' Day 1961 is always, ALWAYS remembered with reverence by my mother who has told us of this great man and this tragic event. Mother saw the event on the news tonight - and reminded me again.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 51rst anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.

Your sacrifice is not forgotten Sir. Today "A" Shift is dedicating our watch to you. R.I.P. brother.

Jail Master Robinson, the vile scum who murdered you cheated the justice system, one by taking his own life, the other by escaping to Chicago. I recall when he was located and the uproar of how he had turned his life around and how he suffered in hiding. No one seemed too concerned about the suffering of your family. You are not forgotten.

Thank you for your service to the County of Middlesex and the Commonwealth as a whole.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.
