I had the pleasure of meeting Robin and her family. Was fortunate to spend time with them on trips to Disney and after they moved here. Her wit and talent were remarkable. Rest in Peace Wobin, we will all miss you.

How very sad. So young. I have seen her site but if someone would post her first trip report, I would love to read it.

Robin was a treasure. One of my favorite stories was one of her kids dialing 911 from an airport telephone because the kid was bored, the phone was there and it was the only number she knew. I followed her Florida adventures and truly hoped for the best. Like most of the rest of you, I "knew" her family from the stories she shared and I was flattered when she emailed me. I wish she could have stayed with us longer. Bon voyage, Wobin, and thanks for everything.

Oh my! I am so saddened with this news.
She certainly touched a lot of people with her wonderful writings.
RIP, Robin!

OH MY!!! I just saw this, I too found the DIS through Robin. She is going to be missed by many.

To the Del family and the Zurg family, my thoughts are with you.

RIP Wobin, LYMI.

ETA: Isn't it ironic that she passed on Walt Disney's birthday? Is she telling him about their wonderful adventures to WDW?

The reason - all the pictures there are of me, I do the "I love you" sign in sign language with my left hand because it is closest to my heart. I do that so that someday when I'm gone and my kids look back at the pictures, they'll always know how much I loved them.

I was so saddened to hear this news. Hubby and I spent many a night sharing the wonderful stories in her trip reports here on Dis. She could make you smile, cry, and laugh out loud all in one paragraph. What a blessing we have all had by just reading her words.

My sincere condolences to her family and friends. She will be missed by so many people.

Here is the full report (minus the embedded photos).

I was very honored to call her my friend. I will miss her dearly as will Del and her children. My heart goes out to them. Robin was one of the funniest women I know. I hope she's at peace and out of pain, physically and emotionally.

I am so sorry to hear this - my condolences to her family. Hers were some of the first trip reports I ever read on the DIS and my family always wanted to know what was so funny but I was laughing so much I could never explain.

RIP
