What followed is something I will never forget.
Football players, cheerleaders, students and coaches were crying aloud and embracing each other, and word quickly reached the stands. No one left the stadium and instead everyone tried to comfort one another. It was a community mourning, and as I thought about it later it made me proud to be living in Mineral Wells.
This community loved Robin Allen, and right now we are trying to process what happened while grieving the loss of a good friend.
Robin, a 30-year city employee, will be put to rest on Friday at First Baptist Church in Mineral Wells.
God bless you, Robin. You made this community better with your devotion to your profession and family, and you will be missed.
We love you, Robin. Rest in peace.
You will never be forgotten.
