    Jimmy and I represented the-gauge at the service today.
    Robin's son read a few of the gauger's tributes, and the rest were printed and available. Letty was pleased by the various steps that we've taken, and possibly surprised as well.
    A couple of Robin's buildings were on display plus a loco and caboose.
    As well as modelling, Robin has been doing much volunteering -- Meals on wheels and I think he originated a "friendly visiting" program for the lonely. A number of appreciation certificates were displayed.

    Wow!! That's a great tribute, you can tell the cut of his jib was wonderful. When there is a laundry list of great achievments. The Gaugers were there in spirit and on paper, that's wonderful.

    ~~ yes, most of our friends & Family will be suprised at how many online "sincere" friendships we all have made on The Gauge. :)
