Dan, I don\'t even know where to begin or what I could possibly say. Though I only knew Robin for a short time, I do consider her a dear friend. She was kind and thoughtful and made me feel very welcome last year. I hope these kind words and those of the many, many lives she touched can help you through this very difficult time.

I had the huge fortune of being a part of some hockey teams that were more like family, for as much time as you spent with them. Robin Trellis was the mother hen that watched over that family. Robin spearheaded a recognition of my mom's 97th and last birthday and I will never forget the special care she gave my mom that day in organizing every aspect of her last birthday appearance. She managed a hockey team with class and dignity and taught by example what a hockey parent should be about! I am a better person for crossing paths with Robin Trellis!

With deepest sympathy's and condolences ... I know not the words to share that can ease the pain that Dan and Family have had thrusted upon, but I do know that your wife and mother was and will always be remembered as a gracious woman who was a valued member of the amateur hockey community in western Pennsylvania. Her kind words and den motherly approach was unmistakable. Her love of those game, and those so intimately involved in it, was very evident from the moment you met her. She left an indelible mark on the many players, families, coaches, coaches and administrators who were lucky to call her a friend. We have all lost something so very dear and important. With deepest respects!
