He lost what 3 family members in the span of 1 month? That's more than some people may go through in a few years. Chris-105 needs to read it.

After I read that story, I did. He is doing all this to help care for his little sister.

i lost my great-grandfather a few years ago then lost my dad the following year but to lose 3 family members in the span of a month would be too much. I have a lot of respect for Robinson and what he has done since then.
