My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

If you didn't laugh at her trip reports then you just didn't have a sense of humor!!!

Awful news. I also followed her move to Florida and back. She was a funny writer and I loved her blog and trip reports. I feel like I got to know Del and Brother through her. Condolences to family and friends.

Oh how horrible. I truly enjoyed all her trip reports and then her blog. She will be missed by many. Condolences to her husband and family. I'll keep Robin in my thoughts and prayers.

The blue heart is for Chris, pink is for Nikki, and purple is for Bea. Saw this on her blog months ago. I love the idea.

How heartbreaking to hear. My prayers and thoughts go out to her family. Today we are saddened by the loss of a great storyteller, friend, mother, wife, and all that. But in Heaven they're sitting around with big mugs of coffee, laughing at her great stories.

Godspeed my friend, you will be missed.

Her trip reports will likely never be equaled. At times I laughed so hard I had trouble breathing. The last time I checked, all of the links I could find to her reports no longer worked. I wish somehow copies of the early trip reports would be re-posted somewhere as a tribute to this woman's love of her family, life... and Disney.

Oh my, so sad. I remember the first time I read one of her trip reports. I had never read a trip report, but someone linked hers so I started reading. Hilarious! I think I was up half the night.

Prayers to her family.
