 Robin's zeal and love for the lost will never be fogotten. Now he can rest from his long physical battles. I believe he would have told us........"Look,'he said,'I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God." Acts 7:56, NIV

Robin was sunshine on a rainy day.  Always ready to give you a smile. You always felt better when you left his company.  Now, he's in the arms of his loving Lord & Saviour.  No more pain except for those who will miss him.  Debbie, we pray that the memories you have will help you and your family as the Lord guides you as you enter a new chapter in your life without your beloved Robin.

Sincerely,

Robin -
 God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered "come to me." With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Debbie -  As you comprehend this profound loss, let yourself cry knowing each tear is a note of love rising to the heavens.  You have the Cuff and Blocker family's sincere condolences on the loss of beloved husband.

Dear Debbie and Rob;
Sending our deep sympathy on your great loss. It has been our great pleasure to know Robin since we were neighbors 30 years ago, and little Rob came to our house for Good News Club. Robin was a man of integrity.

God stirred a lot of souls at CCP through Robin Collins.  The years spent as a cohort of Robin's there on Wednesday evenings, and the conversations on the parking lot meant alot to me as Robin taught that yes, you can know the Bible, and you can be known by the fruitfulness of your life.
It has been a privilege to walk a ways with Rob, and his beloved Debbie.
God's peace!

Matt 25:37 "then the righteous will answer him (Jesus) Lord...v.39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go visit you?" v.40 "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me'

Now Robin has heard these words in Glory spoken from Jesus The King.
