Hi Sarah I am another of the Sydney Water colleagues who was lucky enough to work with Robyn. I briefly met you last week and just wanted to say how proud your mum would have been of both you and Carly last week and the great job you both did. Your mum was such a lovely person always warm, friendly, smiling and willing to help. We worked together in the same team under Pam Derik for a short time before moving to Parramatta. It was my privilege to work with such a lovely person.
