Robin has just rang and he would like me to pass on to you that he is still "Battling On".

He admits to increased breathing difficulties, but otherwise still sounds as bright as ever although evermore dependent upon his lovely wife Gita. Robin is very appreciative of all of your messages. If you haven't sent one yet or would like to send another, please do so by clicking on 'POSTREPLY' below. I'll be sending a third batch when sufficient drop in.

A big thank you on behalf of Robin.

I again spoke with Robin earlier today.

He is still fighting on. He lapses from time to time but Saturday's win for Reading definitely perked him up. When I told him that I was going to watch Bolton play Reading next Saturday he asked for a souvenir Programme - which I'll send, along with my 'match report'.

He is virtually bedridden now, which doesn't please him too much, but he is in good hands with Gita along with carers regularly visiting to see to his needs. The good news is that he has no pain.

We can only ask that the fight goes on, hopefully bringing improvement.

Hang in there Robin, you are a true 'Hawk' and many other 'Hawks' are with you. Mandy and I are thinking of you and wish you all the very best and also for Gita. Proud to have served along side both you and Mick. Keep fighting mate.

Kevin & Mandy
