I had the privilege of meeting Robin during my time at Clearview. Robin was someone that I looked forward to visiting with. I greatly enjoyed the time I spent painting her nails. She would often be the sunshine in a daily job that could weight heavily on the heart. I looked forward to sitting in her chair and chatting with her. She always knew how to make my heart happy again on days that I was stuggling with the decline or loss of another resident. She was an amazing person, a good hearted person and someone I will always feel blessed to have meet. My deepest condolences go out to her family, I can not imagine the loss you are feeling right now. I will never be able to look at bottle of neon or bright colored nail polish without thinking of Robin again.
