Hello

My name is Emma Robinson and I am the grand daughter of Flight Engineer J V Robinson.  My father, my sister and I are flying out to Holland in a couple of weeks for his funeral and I would just like to say thank you for all your hard work and efforts for making this possible.  I know we are all incredibly grateful for the opportunity to say thank you and goodbye properly, I am amazed and touched by all the hard work that has gone into it.

Best wishes and many many thanks again.

Emma

Hi Emma,
              you are more than welcome. When I spotted the story and started this thread I had no idea how it would end. I am so glad that you and your family will have the chance to say good bye and that your grand father will get the burial he deserves. I am sure I can say this for all roots chatters involved with this search that we were proud to have helped and very very happy that we managed what we did. All the best

Indeed our pleasure..... it's wonderful seeing ends to stories.  I will be thinking also of Len Moss (great aunt Josie's first husband) on the day of the funeral, and you all.

Cheers

May you all be rewarded, somehow, some day.
