I remember his kindness to my family twenty years ago when he came to the hospital to administer the last rites to my father. We had been unable to get a parish priest to come to the hospital and he was the only priest from the diocese that would come late in the evening. He consoled us and promised to return the next day to pray for my father. Unfortunately, my father passed away the next day but, thankfully, he was able to have the last rites because of Fr. Robinson.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Fr. Robinson. I cherish my memories of Father at St. Anthony's, when my young son was altar boy. And the times at St. Stan's and St. Hyacinth when I was member of their choirs. God bless you Father, may you rest in peace.

My prayers have been with you for along time. This was a hard road for all of our family. The Lord knew what He was doing with Father Jerry. The Lord was there with you during your anguish. He is with you now to comfort and strengthen you during this time. The Lords grace and strength are sufficent to carry you through. Love you always. Karen
