View Full Version : Robin - Caitlyn's Mom

06-18-2003, 07:32 AM
I don't know how to post this so I'll just say the little I know.

I received a phone call from Robin's mom saying she passed away this morning. She said she had an aortic aneurysm and they couldn't save her. They will try to have a service Friday. I'll try to find out more later.

Say a prayer for Caitlyn. I can't imagine how alone she is right now and she has lost far too much in her short life. I'm worried about what may happen with her without her mom.

Give a friend a hug, you never know when they might not be here anymore.

06-18-2003, 07:34 AM
Oh no what horrible news. That poor baby. Prayers for the family.

06-18-2003, 07:36 AM
I don't know how to respond. I had to read your post 3-4 times before I fully understood. Robin was such a special person on these boards and I can't imagine her not being a part of our community. :( :( :(

God bless her, her family and most especially her little girl, Caitlyn.

:( :( :(

Very sad news :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 07:48 AM
I am in a state of shock. Like Becka, I have had to read this several times.

My heart breaks for Caitlyn.

06-18-2003, 07:48 AM
I am truly in shock to hear this :( I don't even know what to say.... poor Caitlyn :( She has lost so much in such a short life... my prayers are with her and all who love Robin. She will be missed....

06-18-2003, 07:48 AM
Like Becka, I'm shocked and just reading this over and over.

Poor little Caitlyn has lost so much so soon. She will definitely be in my prayers.

The month of June can be hard around here...Tink, Sylvia and now Robin.:(
I can't believe this. I am so sad to hear this terrible news.:(

06-18-2003, 07:50 AM
:( Poor Caitlyn.:( She's lost 2 parents in such a short time and she's so young.:(

I hope her birth father doesn't get her.:mad:

I'll miss Robin. I didn't know her all that well, but I'm in tears this morning thinking about her losing her life at such a young age.:( She was such a good mommy too.:(

Thanks for letting us know, Janette.:(

06-18-2003, 07:50 AM
I can't find the words to say how sorry I am. That poor child, what she has been through. She'll be remembered in my prayers as well as the family.

I know that he still had parental rights. Robin had agreed to not sue for back child support in exchange for him not trying to see Caitlyn. I don't know what will happen.

06-18-2003, 07:57 AM
My immediate thought was that father, and would Caitlyn have to go live with him. :(

Please, dear God, protect that child and keep her out of harms way.

I am in tears. I just cannot believe this.

06-18-2003, 08:01 AM
Oh that would be horrible if she had to go live with him. Robin was so wonderful. I feel like I'm in a nightmare. I could only be a million times worse for her family.

06-18-2003, 08:03 AM
Oh no!! :(

How sad for her family, most especially her beautiful little girl!

06-18-2003, 08:04 AM
Kejoda, I feel the same way -- like this is all part of a terrible dream! :(

I keep clicking on this thread hoping these terrible words don't exist........

I know Robin had gastric bypass surgery not long ago, I am wondering if her death is anyway associated with that. I guess we will find out when details unfold.

Janette, please extend our condolences to Robin's mother when you speak with her.

06-18-2003, 08:04 AM
This is so sad. My heart breaks for that poor baby. My prayers are with the family.

06-18-2003, 08:11 AM
I'm amazed at how quickly word gets around I'm Jennifer Robin's little sister when I heard one of the first things I thought was how are we going to tell her Disney friends We dont think it was connected with any of her surgeries it's just a tragic occurence that has now taken one of the people I can say I truly loved and one who protected me from this world I know now in my heart and my mind that I want to and have to be the same to caitlyn as my sister was to me the one who protected and cared for me I have to be caitlyn's "older sister" I just hope the job I do is 1/100th of how robin was to me if I can do this then I have suceeded I hope you all knew robin like I did


06-18-2003, 08:11 AM

It's just unbelievable. I can't quite grasp it yet. Poor Caitlyn and you too Jennifer. :(

06-18-2003, 08:27 AM
OMG - I just don't know what to say. I'm feeling so much right now and just cannot get it into words.

Jenniffer --- PLEASE PM me and I will give you my phone number. If there is anything I can do --- lend an ear -- or ANYTHING, feel free to call me at anytime! Please let your family know that I am thinking of them.

I spoke to Robin on another board recently. She told me that Caitlyn does not see her biological father. Jennifer can you let us know if that continues to be the case.

I am grieving so much I can't put it into words. Jennifer our love and prayers to you and to Caitlyn. Please keep us informed.

06-18-2003, 08:39 AM

I can't seem to take it in - I'm so sorry for your loss Jennifer, you and your whole family - particularly Caitlyn, that poor little girl. Please Jennifer let Caitlyn know that there are a WHOLE LOT of people who know her through her mommy on these boards and we LOVE her very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

06-18-2003, 08:51 AM
Whoa. Add me to the list that had to re-read this a couple of times. My deepest most heartfelt condolences to Robin's mom, precious Caitlyn, and to you Jennifer. Please please please let us know if there is ANYTHING we can do for you all.

06-18-2003, 08:53 AM
It's taken me a while to comprehend this as well. It seems like just yesterday we were watching the Lion King and having lunch with Robin and Caitlyn. Even having been through so much in her life, Robin was so upbeat and optimistic about her future. I just can't believe she's gone so suddenly. :(

My condolences to you, Jennifer, and to Caitlyn and the rest of the family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

06-18-2003, 08:54 AM
My heart is breaking for Caitlyn.

Poor Caitlyn. I'll definately be thinking of her today.

06-18-2003, 09:19 AM
I am speechless! How tragic and terrible! I just had the pleasure of meeting Robin and Caitlyn at the Dallas DIS meet about a month ago. I can't believe she is gone. My heart breaks for Caitlyn and Robin's entire family. My prayers are with them all. :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 09:20 AM
I am heartbroken to hear this :( I met Robin December, 2001. She was a sweetheart and her little girl was precious.

I am praying for Robin, her family and this little girl. God bless them all. I think for one time in my life I am speechless :(

06-18-2003, 09:22 AM
My heart goes out to Caitlyn, Jennifer and Robin's entire family. I am feeling such sadness for them.

She was so young and had so much to give. My hope is that Caitlyn grows up knowing just how special her Mom really was.

06-18-2003, 09:23 AM
:( I'm fighting back the tears right now

06-18-2003, 09:23 AM
This is such sad, sad news. :( I'm so sorry. I will keep Kaitlyn in my prayers always. :( I'm stunned and saddened. :(

06-18-2003, 09:24 AM

06-18-2003, 09:25 AM

06-18-2003, 09:36 AM
This is so heartbreaking. I just kept reading the post over and over, hoping the words would change. A very bright light has gone out on the CB. :(

06-18-2003, 09:37 AM
My prayers are with Robin, Caitlyn and the family. I am just so shocked and heartbroken. That poor poor baby:(

06-18-2003, 09:37 AM

I am so very, very saddened by this terrible news.

Our most sincere condolences to you, Caitlyn, and your entire family, Jennifer.

I know I speak for many here when I say that we here at the DIS CB always admired Robin for her spirit, her undying love and determination to protect Caitlyn, and her unfailing ability to not let all the hardships she faced in life get her down. And we all enjoyed her wonderfully humorous take on some of the more colorful members of your family.

We will miss her greatly. May she rest in everlasting peace.

:( :( :( :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 09:43 AM
What a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers with Jennifer, Caitlyn and the entire family.

Sorry to hear the sad news....:(

I met Robin and Caitlyn in December 2001, also. I can't believe this. Robin was so young. I'm very sorry.

I had to click on this thread three times before I could respond. I am just so sad. My heart is breaking for Caitlyn, to have to deal with so much at such a young age. :( And there could even be more to come with her birth father still running around and still having his parental rights. :( :mad: My condolences and sympathy to all of Robin's family. We will miss her so much on this board. She has made us laugh many times, and she has made us cry. She seemed like such a strong woman and an incredible mom. This place won't be the same without her. :(

06-18-2003, 10:09 AM
I am in shock. This just should not have happened. I can't imagine how Caitlyn must be feeling right now. :( Thank you for telling us you'll take care of her Jennifer. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the rest of Robins family.

06-18-2003, 10:13 AM
I'm so sorry to read this. Like many others I had to read it several time for it to sink in. I'm very sadden by this terrible news.

My condolences and prayers for Caitlyn and the Family.

06-18-2003, 10:14 AM
Oh no. I am so sorry to read this. So much tragedy in so young a life. :(

06-18-2003, 10:15 AM
Oh, I am just sick with sadness. Poor sweet Caitlyn. :(

06-18-2003, 10:15 AM
My prayers are with her family.

06-18-2003, 10:18 AM
I don't know what to say. I am totally in shock and floored and saddened by this. :( Poor Caitlyn. :(

06-18-2003, 10:19 AM
What tragic news. I am just heartsick over this and my thoughts and prayers go out for the whole family. Jennifer, take good care of that precious little Caitlyn. I, too, am praying that her bio. father will keep to his agreement of not trying to see her. So sad, so very very sad that Robin would be called home so soon. God bless Caitlyn, she has had so much tragedy in her young life.

06-18-2003, 10:23 AM
I just can't believe this happened. It is so sad. My prayers being said for little Caitlyn. What a rough road she has trod in such a short time.

Jennifer, please know that we all cared for Robin, even if many of us never met her in person. She was such a light here on the CB. Her humor was infectious. There's another thread highlighting some of her posts, and they sum up her great outlook on life. We are praying for you and your family as you get through this very difficult time.

I am sitting here at work with a huge lump in my throat. I just can't believe this has happened.

06-18-2003, 10:27 AM
This is very sad news. My condolences to you, Caitlyn and your family, Jennifer. I am sure you will do a wonderful job of protecting Caitlyn and reminding her how much her mom loved her.

06-18-2003, 10:30 AM
OMG! How sad. :( They will definitely be in my thoughts.

06-18-2003, 10:30 AM
May God in His Mercy give her and her family Peace

06-18-2003, 10:32 AM
Another one checking in here with total and absolute shock and tears strolling down my cheeks.....

I will echo everyone else - how horrible for Caitlyn after all that she has been through with the losses in her life and the troubles she's been through and had to deal with at such a young age....

Jennifer - I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers and please let us know if there is anything we can do!

I'm so sorry to hear the news. :( Robin was such a lovely person. I enjoyed her stories. I never had the chance to meet her in person, but I felt like I knew her.

I hope the family knows that we share in their loss. Our community is grieving too.

This is such a shock. Let me know if there is anything I can do. I will keep the family, and especially Caitlyn, in my thoughts and prayers. Please keep us informed about Caitlyn.

This is truly heartbreaking. :(

My sincere condolences to Robin's family, especially her little Caitlyn

06-18-2003, 12:16 PM
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Caitlyn and your family. I just had the honor of getting to know your sister better through another message board. I was so awed at her courage and strength to face everything she had at such a young age. She was so excited to have lost weight and some of the things she said still have me laughing. She had a wonderful sense of humor and I will truly miss her!

If there is anything I can do my email is


Please just let me know and please let us know about Caitlyn!

{{{HUGS}}} to you and your family and that baby again!

06-18-2003, 12:25 PM
:( :( :( I just found the boards, and I can't believe what I've read. Too, too sad - such a tragedy. Jennifer, you and Caitlyn, and the rest of Robin's family have my sincere sympathy and prayers. I wish I could be more eloquent, but words fail me. I'm just so sorry. :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 12:32 PM
I have no words...... I just keep staring at my screen feeling like a part of our family has been lost....... wanting desperately for it to be returned so we can go on like normal.......... realizing it will never be the same........ it doesn't matter how well you knew her, if she was one of your DISbuddies or not, whether you always agreed or never did........ one of our friends, an opinion, a viewpoint, some experience, a lot of laughs and an occassional reason to grieve is gone, and the DIS will never be the same. Another chair is empty, and will remain so.........

My prayers and deepest sympathy for Caitlyn, Jennifer and Robin's entire family for their loss. Hang on Lil' Caitlyn..... you have a lot of people praying for you and caring about you.

Please let us know what we can do.

06-18-2003, 12:36 PM
I am just so saddened by this. I can't believe how tragic this story is. Just sitting here in tears....:( Sending prayers to everyone hurting right now, especially Caitlyn.

This is just so horrible. I really dont know what to say. I spent the first 5 months of last year pm-ing Robin, we were both really excited about going to DIS-con2. I dont think that i would of booked my flight etc and made the decision to go if it wasnt for her saying that we could be roomies. We lost touch later on in the year when Dans had his health problems, and well you all know the rest.:(

I will miss her. She was a good friend to chat to about 'nothing' if you know what i mean. My heart goes out to Caitlyn.


06-18-2003, 01:06 PM
I am so shocked by the news. Jennifer I am sending prayers and my deepest sympathy to Caitlyn, yourself and your whole family.
Robin will be missed by all. Please let us know periodically how ya'll (especially Caitlyn) are doing. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

I am jennifer's boyfriend. I have started a petition to have on hand for the court if ever there is a custody battle for Caitlyn. I will make sure that joseph does not get her. If you would like to sign it please send me an e-mail at:


Please mark the subject as Caitlyn

Thank you

06-18-2003, 02:24 PM
My condolences to the family. I always loved her tag line about her daughter.

So young. I just figured out how young she really was. So very sad.


06-18-2003, 02:54 PM
I am very sad and heartbroken to hear this. Hug your loved ones, please. :(

06-18-2003, 03:16 PM
June really is a very bad month for the DIS; as another poster mentioned, first Tink, then Sylvia, and now Robin. My thoughts and prayers are with Robin's entire family, especially little Caitlyn. :(

06-18-2003, 03:17 PM
:(:( My deepest sympathies to all.:(

06-18-2003, 03:37 PM
How sad :(

Maybe someone from the DIS or her sister can open up a PayPal account or something, so DISers can give a little something to help out her poor daughter in some way.

06-18-2003, 03:38 PM
and all of Robins family.

Sad day.


06-18-2003, 03:51 PM
My sympathies to Robin's family.
As her sister said, Life is so NOT fair.:mad:

May your wonderful memories sustain you.

We will miss you , Robin, May God bless you and keep you.
You brightened many a day here with your great stories and sense of humor. I thank you.

I am so very sad :( and at a loss for words.............

06-18-2003, 03:56 PM
This is awful. I just can't believe it. Like Steve mentioned, we were just laughing ourselves silly a couple weeks ago at Robin's stories. Robin was so young and full of life. I just can't believe this. It's so sad, especially for Caitlyn, she's lost both parents in such a short period of time. That poor baby, she's got to be so lost right now.

06-18-2003, 04:13 PM
I'm praying here too. What a sad loss.

06-18-2003, 04:46 PM
I'm so sorry to hear this, my prayers go out to Robin's family, especially to Caitlyn, that poor child has been through more in her young life than most people face in an entire lifetime. :(

06-18-2003, 04:50 PM
:( My prayers go out to her family and Caitlyn.:(

06-18-2003, 05:08 PM
I wasn't able to read the boards earlier today from work and I've been unable to access from home since Tuesday morning. The title of this thread did not catch my attention immediately but I read another thread detailing Robin's final posts with a reply sending others here to learn more. What a sad day it is here on the DIS. Robin will be missed by her online family. She obviously touched many here, as is attested by the 11 pages of replies that were here when I began mine.

To Jennifer and Caitlyn's family,
My family's condolences to you all. What a terrible shame that Robin had to be taken from you so suddenly. I hope the best for little Caitlyn and that you become stronger as a result of her life ending so suddenly.

With deepest sympathy,
The Fry Family
Reading, Pennsylvania.

06-18-2003, 05:52 PM
I am speechless and in shock, my deepest condolences to Robin'f family and hoping that Caitlyn can be safe from now on.

06-18-2003, 06:01 PM
Words fail me at moments like this. Prayers for Caitlyn and for those who will nurture and care for her now that her parents have both passed on. Surely Robin and Dan are watching over her now.

06-18-2003, 06:14 PM
I am at a total loss for words right now.:( Life can be so short for all of us can't it?:(

My heart, prayers and deepest sympathy go out to this precious little girl and all of Robin's family.:(

06-18-2003, 06:23 PM
How very sad...my thoughts and prayers go out to friends and the family, especially little Caitlyn.

06-18-2003, 06:24 PM
OMG. I don't know what to say. One moment I'm laughing, reading Robins nudist camp thread....and the next, there is a link to this thread. :( I just can't believe it!!

My prayers for Caitlyn & her family.

I'm just in shock!

06-18-2003, 06:48 PM
I don't know what to say...:( :( :(

I had to read the post a few times to make sure I was reading it right. This is so terribly sad, just last week Robin was posting about her grandmother and now she is gone. I feel so sad for Caitlyin:( :( :confused: :confused:, that poor little girl has been through so much already.:( :( :(

My prayers and thoughts are with her little girl and her family. This is so sad...:( :( :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 06:48 PM
I'm so sorry!:(

06-18-2003, 06:50 PM
I absolutely couldn't believe this either. I'm in tears and can't seem to stop crying. Robin was such a wonderful person, and Caitlyn has had to go through so much and now this. It just isn't fair.

06-18-2003, 07:12 PM
this is so sad to hear. My heart goes out to Caitlyn and Robin's family. :(

06-18-2003, 07:35 PM
How terribly sad. My thoughts are with Caitlyn and her family. I hope she's able to get through this. Poor dear child.

06-18-2003, 07:41 PM
This is absolutely heartbreaking. I can remember Robin's posts about Caitlyn's father and the abuse. I was so upset for them. And then to lose Dan, who seemed to be such a wonderful person and an angel in their life did not seem fair. But this is beyond words. I pray for this little girl that her father does not get her back.

Many prayers for Robin's family.:( :( :( :( :( :(

06-18-2003, 08:04 PM

Thoughts and prayers from AL to Caitlyn and her entire family.

06-18-2003, 08:05 PM

I can only add my prayers to the many already said.

06-18-2003, 08:52 PM
I can't hold back the tears. I haven't cried so hard in a very long time. This is beyond sad. It is just so tragic and heartbreaking.

06-18-2003, 09:15 PM
:( I haven't been around here very long, but I am in tears reading about this poor woman and her family. Caitlyn and her family are in my prayers, as well as all of you who knew Robin.

My heart goes out to Robin's family and poor little Caitlyn, who has known too much heartache this year :(

06-18-2003, 09:44 PM
Oh my. Poor Caitlyn. I pray that God will protect her and keep her close to Him and let her feel all of the love in the world. My prayers go out to all of Robin's family. Although I never met Robin in person it is still a shock and painful to see that she is gone. I have enjoyed reading her posts. This thread has been difficult to read through the tears.

06-18-2003, 09:57 PM
I too will be saying prayers for Caitlyn and her family.:(

06-18-2003, 10:43 PM
My heartfelt condolences go out to all who loved Robin.

06-18-2003, 10:55 PM
OMG, I cannot believe this! I just was reading about the 'nudist grandma' recently...this is unbelieveable! My deepest, most sincere condolences to Robins family. How incredibly sad!:( :( :(

06-18-2003, 11:50 PM
Oh my!!! Robin was such a nice person and had dealt with so much. I can't believe this! :(

My prayers go out to Caitlyn and Jennifer and the whole family. This is just so unbelievable.

06-19-2003, 12:02 AM
Robin was one of the first DISers I ever met. . it was at a meet in Dallas and she had posted a few weeks earlier about a pretty grisley episode with her ex-husband and I made a point of offering my services if she wanted to find him and lay a little hurt on him. . .

But she was with her new boyfriend and Caitlyn and said she was okay and that wouldn't be necessary. .

I met her a second time at a meet across from Six-Flags in Dallas. . . her mom was there with her and I only got to talk with her a minute or two but she seemed happy and okay. . .

Dunno what to say here. . Robin was a person who has been on the DIS since I've been on the DIS and while we never were really close there is still that bond.

Of course now I wish I would have made a point of sending her a PM or an E and seeing how she was. . but **** it; woulda; shoulda; coulda. . . sounds phony even to me. . . I do remember her contribution to the "Strangest Thing at WDW" thread about her "unwashed Grandmother in the wheelchair rolling down to Bay Lake" and that was one of the funnier things I ever read on the DIS so I think for now I'm hanging on to that to remember her by instead of the tough things she had to deal with during her life.

I heard about this this morning and it's taking me all day to think about what I wanted to write and this still isn't much. . just want to say how sorry I am and how Caitlyn will be in my prayers; and that where ever you are Robin I'll miss ya.. .

06-19-2003, 12:04 AM
:( :( :(
I am at a loss for words here....Robin and I had exchanged PM's now and again..idle chit chat to pass the time. This is just so sad. Such a young life taken way too soon. I will keep Caitlyn and her entire family in my thoughts and prayers and may you Rest in Peace Robin :(

06-19-2003, 12:19 AM
I'm speechless like many others..:(
I will be praying for Caitlyn & her family..:(

06-19-2003, 12:26 AM
Oh my gosh...I'm having a hard time even breathing right now. I was just thinking about Tink and Sylvia this morning. This is terrible, terrible news, I just can't absorb it.

06-19-2003, 03:33 AM
How terribly sad. I remember just reading about the nudist grandma and the falling off the Ferry dock not too long ago. I had quite a chucckle over those stories. I'll definitely keep Caitlyn & her family in my prayers. :(

06-19-2003, 04:42 AM
How very, very sad :( there simply are no words.....

I can't believe this.. She was way too young!! :(

I, too, am late in seeing theis wrenching news, my heart goes out to Robin's family and little Caitlin, I just can't imagine what they are all going thru. I am praying her little girl stays safe and with those who love her.

06-19-2003, 11:12 AM
This is so sad.:( I haven't had access to the boards in several days, and to return to hear this is just awful. God Bless Robin and most of all, little Caitlin.

06-19-2003, 12:57 PM
Oh, that is so sad! I don't participate in the boards very much any more because of all of the "infighting!"

When you read something like this, it really makes you stop and think! Poor Caitlyn! I hope that she has a lot of caring relatives!

06-19-2003, 01:33 PM
I'm so sorry to hear this :(. What very sad news!

06-19-2003, 01:56 PM
Nothing more to add that hasn't already been said.

06-19-2003, 04:34 PM
Again, how horribly sad. I feel inadequate to even say anything, except how terrible and shocked I am right now. Robin always reminded me of a very tough lady, even when she thought she wasn't. She did everything to protect her child - and try to build a life.

My heart breaks for that little girl. My deepest sympathy to her family.


06-19-2003, 04:42 PM
How terribly sad.:( An awful tragedy. I really don't know what to say.

My prayers are with that sweet little girl and Robin's entire family. I pray for their peace and that Caitlyn is able to survive this tragedy in the best way possible. Jennfer, I pray for your strenth in helping to get through this and in raising that little girl. My sincere sympathies to you. {{HUGS}}

06-19-2003, 04:46 PM

My condolences to Jennifer and her family and {{{hugs}}} for Caitlyn:( :(

06-19-2003, 05:35 PM
I can not even express in words how horrible I feel and I just pray
things work out for her little girl. This is a terrible loss for our
community at Dis .

06-19-2003, 06:27 PM
My deepest sympathies to this family and little Caitlyn.

06-19-2003, 09:14 PM
I had to search for this thread after reading the other two thread titles in reference to this horrible tragedy, and I was hoping I was mistaking and reading something into it. I haven't been on the DIS in two days, so missed the initial post. This is just so unbelievably sad. I don't even know what else to say. Just so so sad.:(

06-19-2003, 09:40 PM
I really don't even know what to say. Caitlyn is in my prayers.

06-19-2003, 10:29 PM

06-19-2003, 11:18 PM
I just found this thread and am in shock like everybody else.

Prayers and condolences to all.........

06-20-2003, 03:38 AM
May God bless Robin and the family she leaves behind. I, too, remember the posts when Robin was hurting so much she did so anonymously. I remember the struggle to protect Caitlyn and I loved the sig about the best thing being Caitlyn's mommy. Jennifer, hugs and wishes for you to be strong and know that you and your family are in the prayers and best wishes of all of us on DIS.

06-20-2003, 05:04 AM
I am so sad to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers will be with Robins family, especially her beautiful daughter, Caitlyn. May God watch over her and keep her safe!

Oh my gosh, what sad, sad news. I have not been around much lately, a little under the weather, only to return to this sad news.

My heart is breaking for Caitlyn. I can't image someone so young having to go through so much in such a short time.

Caitlyn my prayers are with you.

06-21-2003, 07:26 PM
How tragic for Caitlyn. Keeping her and the rest of Robin's family in my prayers.

06-21-2003, 10:53 PM
It's so hard to even know what to think, or say... this is so very difficult to accept.

Robin was beautiful, inside and out. Her sly and irreverent wit was apparent to us here, and some of her posts were truly comic and storytelling masterpieces.

But her full beauty was only visible when you could see her with Caitlyn. The two of them together were a powerful team. The young and lovely doting mommy, the bubbly, outgoing, confident and curious child. (Caitlyn's a lot bigger and even cuter, if that's possible, than her sweet photo in Robin's signature.)

Robin was dealt a lot of tests in her short life... and she did cram a lot of living into her tender years.

My prayers will be with Caitlyn tonight, and from now on.

06-22-2003, 08:16 PM
Jennifer-- if you are still reading..please give my sympathies to your family. I only knew Robin through her posts here and I'm so sad that we won't be able to share about our common love for Disney! That picture of Caitlin in her signature will be in my mind always and I will not stop praying for her!

07-10-2003, 08:57 PM
I am heartbroken. I have been so busy with life that I haven't checked in on my DIS friends in such a long time. My heart is broken for you, young Caitlyn.

Your mother was a sweet lady--witty and lively...and she loved you best of all.
