I, too, shall never forget Deacon Robinson's kindness, his smile, and his voice. I shall miss him during revival time with the Deacons Conference and how he would always give testimonies and sing old hymns of the church. Our prayers and love are extended to the Robinson family during this difficult yet joyous moment of knowing just where he is right now. He's singing his way in Heaven. He truly loved the Lord. May God's loving presence offer you peace, comfort, and love as each day comes. The Burruss Family, Ashland
