Dear Member / Friend

It is with regret that we announce the death of Frank Robinson. Antoinette Dick advised the following:

"For those of you who knew Frank Robinson from R.L.I. Camp Hospital. This is to let you know that he passed away at Nazareth House, in Pretoria during the night on the 3rd September 2013. He is survived by his wife Jacquie, their three children now being deceased. Frank would have been 75 on the 6th November."

Frank played in the RLI Water Polo Team in 1968

The RLI Association extends our sincere condolences to Jacquie and Frank's friends.

Dearest comrades! all is over and long gone;
But love is not over—and what love, O comrades!
Perfume from battle-fields rising—up from foetor arising.

Perfume therefore my chant, O love! immortal Love!
Give me to bathe the memories of all dead soldiers,
Shroud them, embalm them, cover them all over with tender pride!

Perfume all! make all wholesome!
Make these ashes to nourish and blossom,
O love! O chant! solve all, fructify all with the last chemistry.

Give me exhaustless—make me a fountain,
That I exhale love from me wherever I go, like a moist perennial dew,
For the ashes of all dead soldiers.

Walt Whitman
