"I think of you when I see my children's plays; they know of you and your influence on me. My son loves the stage, a baritone angel. My daughter is fearless, a skilled scenic designer. In telling them about you, your influence lives on, Robin. <3"

"Hi, Mom. Five years after you had to go, you've got two Granimals up there to canoodle with. Copper left a few weeks ago (poor J&M were gutted), and our sweet Skeeter departed just five days ago (we're heartbroken). Now they can snuggle with you."
