Florine Powell speaks to the grave of her son, Cedric Robinson, July 23, 2012 at Fort Myers Cemetery. 'Look at this, would you just look at this?' Powell says. 'Look what they've done,' speaking about the liquor bottles Robinson's friends left as tokens of respect in his honor. However, Powell said that she understands why they are placed there. Powell admits she doesn't visit often because the pain is still overwhelming. This was the first time in several months since his death, June 6, 2011, that she visited. Robinson was 20. 'The last time I came out here was right after his anniversary. For his birthday, I couldn't get out of the car. I just drove by and I sat there and I just couldn't get out of the car. I've been out here maybe three times. I just can't.'
