This time of the year is again a moment to remember Robin. For years we did not have intensive contacts but we did exchange our best wishes. And occasionally saw each other during the great parties Robin would organise in Brussels. Robin and I met each other when studying at Columbia University, both going for the MIA. Since then our contacts have been on and of, including on the great travels he did and the interesting work he did with the Commission, charadterised by a oot of foresight on certain issues. Working myself for the EU, there was a lot to discuss. My wife and I will remember Robin as an example of living your life to the full while caring for the great good. Robin lives in our thoughts.
