I am saddened to hear of Ann's passing. I built a home for her and her husband in Flat Rock, NC. When we first met she declared herself a Self-Proclaimed Architect. And...This she was. The home she designed was sitting right in the middle of two great big pine trees 12'-1" apart. We moved the house 3 times before we finally got it to where there was 6'-1/2" on each side of the center of the front door. She and Robert were absolutely wonderful people to work for. I truly enjoyed building their home. Later, I was asked to help remodel other parts of the house. I hope that her children and grandchildren are still able to enjoy the home as much as she did for many years to come. My retirement has been very pleasant and easy to do having been able to work for such wonderful people like Mr. & Mrs. Robinson. My wife and I travel a great deal and I enjoy riding my Harley. Ann was a very lovely, friendly and all around great lady to work with. She will be missed. I would like to offer my sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Dear Robinson Family, I am sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories, and in knowing that God is "near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves." (Psalm 34;18) He has promised to soon "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25;8) With deepest sympathy,

Life is a journey and dying is going home. It is with a heavy heart for the family that I extend my sincere condolences in the loss of your dear mother. She was a gracious and wonderful lady. I always enjoyed hearing talk about her wonderful family,college days, and life in general. She was a fascinating lady, and she will surely be missed by all her friends and the staff at Covenant Way.

My Mother asked me to e-mail her condolences to the family. I remember Mrs. Robinson very well as she was our neighbor when I was a little boy. I will always remember her kind and gentle spirit.
