Unhappy With a Heavy Heart

I would like to tell all the oldies here that Robin Costello - Dels wife passed away at 3am this morning.

She has been plagued with blood clot issues the past few months but I'm not sure of the details of her passing.

RIP my dear friend...your wonderful talent with the written word will be missed.

ETA: Bennet aka Zurg is in the process of compiling all the Reports and stories we can find. After we get them together we will be sure to post some where that they will be easily accessible.

For those that were asking there is a group who is in the process of setting up a memorial fund and doing some fund raising. If your interested in more info feel free to PM me and I can give you the info.

In Honor of Robin Costello I will miss you my dear friend.

RIP Robin. I always enjoyed her trip reports and her blog. My Prayers go out to her husband, children, and grandchild.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this! She was so young and I didn't realize she was ill.
