My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. Robin was a ray of sunshine for her family. I worked with Mandi at Seasons Hospice, Tulsa OK, and we have been good friends for a long time. I know there is comfort knowing Robin is in Heaven, but I also know that she will be missed too. Love, Paula and Wayne Coleman

I was first introduced to Robin as Gail's sister. Gail and I were in the band together in high school and Robin would not be far away when Mr. and Mrs. Spence were chaperoning a band event. Her smile would light up any room and any football stadium and she eventually enjoyed the music. When I became a teacher, I had Robin's nephew Tyler in my kindergarten class and he would often draw pictures and write stories of his beloved Aunt Robin. She is now in Heaven standing before Jesus and for that we are grateful. I know that she will be missed here on Earth but we all have comfort in knowing we will see her again - God Bless Spence family. Sending love your way!

Mr and Mrs Spence and family

I had no idea that Robin had passed away until late this aftrnoon. I am so very sorry for your loss. It seems like yesterday she was outside on the carport of your home on Red Oak Drive next to us and I would wave to Robin as I was leaving for work. She was such a bright light and I have wonderful memories of her and of y’all. I am super glad I got to see her recently at an event at Eagle Station in Patterson. I will continue to be praying for your entire family in the days ahead. Beth Gill Spivey

I cannot tell you how very sorry I am about the loss of your precious Robin. She was such a delight! She truly held love and joy in her heart, and knew how to spread it around. I always loved seeing her in church, she would always brighten even my worst days. I know she is singing with the Angel choir, and having a blast! Until we are all together again, may His comforting Arms keep you close during these trying days.
