Mrs. Robbins and Lynn, I’m so sorry to hear of Mr. Robbins passing away. I always think of him with a grin on his face. Everything seemed to delight him. So many years given to support 4-H in Branch County. Lynn, I will always remember the 4 of us going to D.C. Many fond memories of your family. Thinking of you all at this time of loss.
