It's so hard to come up with the words to express how sorry I am sweet Robbie is gone. I know my Daddy (Roger Sasser) is completely lost without her & he's only known her for a few years so I can't begin to comprehend the loss her family is feeling. Robbie was such a loving & kind person. I never knew her to behave in any way except the way of a truly classy lady. As much as Robbie will be missed knowing she is completely healed in Heaven with her precious Heavenly Father is a comfort.

Much Love & Many Prayers For You All...
