Dennis and I would like to express our sincere sympathy to Jim and the whole Robinson family. We were blessed to get to know Jim and Rosie while stationed at Scott AFB in the mid 90’s. I so enjoyed singing in the choir with Rosie and having Mr. Jim as a conductor at Westview Baptist Church. Heaven has gained a very sweet lady. Peace to you all, Anne and Dennis Lisherness
