    Robbie was the best! So kind and soft spoken, wiling to share her talents as I recall her, Watha and Mom spending numerous hours on her living room floor blocking out a quilt to make sure the colors blended well together. They would move the same block 6 or 7 times to get it just right. The numerous holiday outings she always had a festive house at Christmas. Lots of memories I will always cherish from the Jackman family. You are in my prayers and may God bless you all!
