I'm shocked. I was a big fan of hers - she touched so many of us with her writing. My prayers go out to her entire family. What a loss for all of us.

Oh no! I followed Robin even after she left the DIS. She had a biting sense of humor that made the every-day funny. {{hugs}} to her family and friends.

I'm so shocked and saddened to read this. I loved Robin's writing. She actually made me laugh out loud. One of her trip reports was the reason I came out of lurk mode all those years ago. I had to give her a big thumbs up. LYMI Wobin. I'll miss you tons.

And hugs and condolences to her family and to you too Zurgswife. Thanks for letting us know.

Oh, how sad.

I too loved her writing......

for some reason I always think of "take two steps to the left" whenever I am in Disney

She will definitely be missed.

How sad! She was way too young to pass, and she will be missed by those of us who loved her trip reports and her blogs.

We'll all miss you "Wobin"...Love ya, mean it...

So sad. I was fortunate enough to meet Robin and her family on several occasions. You couldn't help but smile whenever she was around. When I started seeing the posts on Facebook, a chill ran up my spine. I had been talking about Robin and her wonderful stories to another DISer just a couple of days ago. I cannot believe that she is gone.

Prayers to Del and the family and to all who mourn Robin's passing. LYMI

No. It is so shocking to hear this news. Like so many, her trip reports became a backdrop to our own Disney experience. The LYMI pin is one of my favorite possessions. I'm so sorry for the loss to her family and friends.
