I am so very sorry to hear this -my heart goes out to her family and friends.

Hers were some of the first trip reports I read on the DIS....before that, I came to the DIS for information, but thought, "why in the world would I need to read about somebody else's vacation".

Her humor was such a joy - I'm sorry I hadn't kept up with her in recent years. She will be very missed.

LYMI Wobin!!

What terrible news. I loved her trip reports, long before I was a poster on the DIS. They made me laugh and cry! LYMI Robin.

Oh nooo, I'm so sorry to hear this news. She made us all feel a part of her family, really got to know them. I sure hope her kids are okay. I wish we could resurrect her trip reports, they're like a favorite book that you'd love to read over and over again. Boy she made us laugh. Huge hugs to her family, LYMI Robin.
My happy place

I am so sorry to read this. Robin was so funny, and she certainly left an impression on so many of us. I can't think of LYMI without thinking of her.

My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

I could just quote & say "ditto" to many of the responses.

Her posts literally "welcomed" me to the Dis
and the joy & hilarity of Disney vacations.
I came on looking for seasoned advice (received tons!),
& her trip reports had me in stitches
& looking forward to finding the lighter side
on my first family vacation with the Mouse.

Prayers said for her family's peace & comfort.
When God lets His children go through fiery trials,
He always keeps one eye on them
and one finger on the thermostat.

~ Greg Laurie, paraphrased.

"Young boys should never be sent to bed.
They always wake up a day older.
And then, before you know it, they're grown."

There is always a crisis.
Perhaps you should consider living your life
during them, otherwise you might miss it. - Hook

How very shocking and sad. She was much too young.

Robin provided us with so much laughter over the years. She shared her wonderful family with us. My thoughts are with them. LYMI, Robin.

I LOVED Delswife's trip reports. She's the reason I never wrote any myself. How could any old trip report measure up to those? My prayers go out to her family. LYMI
