Alix, you were always so much fun to be around during primary school.
I was always loved talking with you and learning from you. You are an incredible person and I miss you so much. I remember bumping into you every day for a few weeks on my way to work in Wellington, you always had such a bright smile and always had time to chat even if it made you a little late. You brightened my life and had a huge impact on who I am today.
Thank you for everything.
There are rare moments in life in which you will come across somebody remarkable. Not only in terms of talent or ability, but a spark behind the eyes that reveals something more: a sincere vigour for life. Alix was one of those people. She wasn't afraid to be an individual. She cared about her family and friends in a way that was selfless and genuine. She showed me what it meant to make the most of every opportunity, and to pursue meaningful things with a light heart.
I knew her and Dail best through primary school & intermediate years (when Alix beat me in every possible athletics event, smashed all of us with tennis balls playing 'Duck Shooting', and invited me to her house to rollerblade and save starfish at the estuary), but we kept in touch over the years and every time we spoke I saw the same zealous spirit that she had as a kid. Unlike a lot of people I know, she never lost her childhood spark.
Alix lived a life that was short but whole, and I believe that in her passing she has bid us all to live with the same vigour that she did. I for one am going to try. No man has owned yesterday or tomorrow; all we will ever have is today.
Dail, Tess, Henry, Rae, Tracey and family: best wishes for your time of healing. You can be so proud of Alix and the wonderful family that you have.
All my love,
A beautiful service. Dear sweet Alix you will be a large gaping hole in all future Robinson gatherings. Rest In Peace.
Smudge and Mike
You were an amazing athlete and person, I will never forget the day I moved to omokoroa number 1 school and our class played a game of soccer only to watch this girl beat all the boys in both speed and skill.
I am so glad to have known you; you are an inspiration and will be dearly missed.
Love goes out to Henry, Dail and the Family.
My dear friend Rae and family
Your sorrow is my sorrow
We your sistas will be holding ur hand tomorrow
All my love
It was a pleasure and an honour having been able to grow up with you.
You had a huge influence on me, and shaped who I have become today.
Smart, kind and extremely good at every sport, I will never forget, and look back with joy on how you constantly succeeded at everything you put your mind to
We will all see you again one day,
Lovely Alix .
I miss you and your smiling face.
I miss your quirky sense of humour and your ability to come up with the most adorable one liners.
Hope you are having a few quiet drinkies in heaven and hanging out with people who love you as much as we all do.
