  13. Scott stopped by the Farmers Market office on a summer afternoon in 2020 to see his wife Sonya, and Sonya introduced me to Scott. Scott was a very pleasant and friendly person; he was proud of his wife and her dedication to the WNC Farmers Market. Since that day I have followed many of Scott and Sonya’s journeys, camping trips, and farm stories. From all that was said, Scott enjoyed life and was a very friendly and genuine person.

  14. Sonya, I am so sorry to hear of your sudden loss. My prayers are for comfort for you and your family that only God can give.

  15. Sonya, Brooke, Cody & Alice – Words seem inadequate during times like this, but we want you to know we here at (GSMC) / Forum Health Asheville are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. May God wrap his loving arms around you & give you strength and peace.

  16. Sonya and family, Rena and family also Bill, My deepest sympathy to all of you. I always remember Scott as easy going, gentle in spirit and kind young boy. He spent many days at our home as a youngster playing with my boys. They also spent much time at Aunt Beulah’s visiting with her and of course eating, as she fed most of the kids on South Turkey Creek. The wonderful memories of those days are forever planted in my heart. Those who were privileged to share in those precious times were truly blessed. Love and prayers to the entire Robinson Family.

  17. Family – I am so very sorry to just be learning this very sad news. I can’t even imagine the loss you must feel. Scott was always such a kind and funny guy. Cody, just know you and all your family are in my thoughts and prayers. The days ahead will be hard, but – by and thru God’s Amazing Grace you will move from day to day. May HE hold you close in his loving arms. If I can help any of you in any way, please allow me that honor and contact me. Love and hugs – BJ
