    I am so sad to hear of Rev. Robinsonโ€™s passing. He was a wonderful pastor at Pleasant Grove in Pelham Ga. He always treated me like a son from when I sang in the choir in high school to even giving me a nice gift after I graduated from college. Rev. Robinson, you will be missed. Take your rest and continue to sleep in peace.๐Ÿ’™
