The way to store your treasures is to do things that are unselfish and kind, but you can’t ‘run ahead of yourself and toot your horn’ because then it doesn’t count. You do them because it’s the right thing to do but you keep it to yourself. The one person- who needs to know you did it- already knows it because He sees all and knows all.... Robin Costello

RIP funny lady...LYMI

Rest in peace, Wobin....your stories made me laugh and I know you will be missed and were much loved by many...

I have enjoyed reading all of Dellswife's post over the years. Followed her blog for awhile. I am so sad to hear of her passing. My heart is breaking for her precious family. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

My deepest sympathies go out to Robin's family. What a terrible loss. She touched a lot of people with her humor and wit. LYMI.

RIP Robin. May God Bless you and your family.

I was in complete shock to read this. What a bright star this world has lost. My prayers are with her family and friends at this time. May they find the strength to get through this time.

I keep thinking of "wobin" - I've gone to the links to re read her stories - I've laughed and I've cried, cried about the pain she's been in - but all the while, she posted such upbeat LOL posts - I found her blog (it was in my favorites, but she stopped updating - I was along for her journey, but respected her when she felt she had to step back a bit)

Thank you for sharing your talent Robin -

again, if she has this much affect on this "stranger on the Dis" I cant imagine what a void she has left for her family - my sympathies...

and like all the others, I cant help but remember "old times" when the "bad shoes"( way before crocs became the shoe at wdw btw!) were LOL hilarious - when people connected - with something (Delswife was the 'bad shoes') when strangers met - online here - and became friends - and took us along with their journeys!

thank you for sharing Robin with us, RIP

and like others...

I was extremely unfortunate as I have never had the chance to read her trip reports. I have seen LYMI in passing and didn't take the time to ask. I am sure I missed out on a wonderful, Mom/Wife/and Friend to many. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and all her friends here on the Dis.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? She made me feel like one of her dear friends each and every time I read her work. She made me laugh so hard I nearly fell out of my chair. I think the best way to describe her for me is that she was so 'real'. I could see her doing all those whacky things just as if I could see it happening to me.

I have missed her over the years and hope her family knows how much joy and happiness she has spread over all our lives. I wish them peace in this difficult time.

Dear sweet irreplaceable Robin. From what started out as a quirky lady who wrote probably the best trip report ever to one of the most genuine friends anyone could ever want, your loss has hit me like a brick. I will always cherish your wit, your charm and your determined spirit. Your ability to take the challenges of life and turn them into humorous and amazing stories was just the tip of who you were. I will always remember your move to Orlando and the phone tree we had going to keep track to make sure you and Del made it safely. You always had a smile in your voice whenever we spoke.

Your love and devotion to your amazing kids and to Del was moving to watch. The biggest wish I hope is that you finally realized how much you meant to all of us and you believed in the natural talent you had to tell a story and make us all feel better about ourselves. I miss you and my heart aches for the loss to your family and all of your friends. I am proud to say I was one of them!
Have a Magical Day!

"Also cute and fluffy" Stitch

Rest In Peace

I feel like I have lost a life long friend even though I met Robin and Zurgswife only once for a brief moment at Disney. Her writings would bring me from tears to laughter all in one sentence! My favorite story of hers was about her "brother" as he helped a homeless person on the side of the road.

As I read of her struggles in Florida, I felt moved to do something. That kind of talent should get the recognition it deserves, so I wrote to Oprah. I know, it was a longshot. But I explained this "Delswife" phenominon that was happening on the Dis boards and sent her a few exerpts from Robin's trip reports. I was so hoping that something good would come of it for Robin.

The world seems a little more sad without her. My sincere condolences to Del and her family.
