He was an actor. He was an only son. He was an only sibling. He loved to read Shakespeare and John Steinbeck. His nickname was "Hook" because he loved the story of Peter Pan. He hated guns.

Robin was my brother. I was only 16 when we were told that he had been killed... it was on Good Friday. I never got the chance to know him as a man, but remember him as a wonderful and loving brother. I miss him very much, and although it has been over 30 years since his death, I am now just beginning to come to terms with this.

Perhaps you knew him... perhaps you didn't. Either way, don't forget him. He is more than just a name on the wall... he was Robin... my brother.
