Robin was a member of our team from 2008 to 2015. She was an extraordinary person and always had a smile and a kind word to share with everyone that crossed her path. She was the type of person that would help anyone without being asked and was an essential part of our office.
Robin lost her brief battle with lung cancer October 1, 2015. We hope to use her passing to warn others of the dangers of Radon gas. Most people do not know that Radon Gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. This silent killer took Robin’s life; it took a mother from her daughter, a loving wife from her husband of 40 years and a friend from all of us.
