Sending my prayers to Caitlyn and the rest of Robin's family and friends. It is obvious how much Robin was loved and how much she will be missed.

When I looked for the obituary half of me still believed that I wouldn't find it. It just couldn't be true

Thanks for sharing with us Janette. That is a beautiful tribute to her indeed.
When you look into a child's face, and you're seeing the human race, and the endless possibilities there where so much can come true, and you think of the beautiful things a child can do, how long -- would the child survive, how long -- if it was up to you?
When you think about the money spent on defense by a government and the weapons of destruction we've built, we're so sure that we need, and you think of the millions and millions that money could feed, how long -- can you hear someone crying, how long -- can you hear someone dying before you ask yourself why?

When I see things in cyberspace, it is tempting sometimes to not believe they are really true. Maybe it really didn't happen, maybe it is all a mistake, or even some sick joke (we know we've had some trolls around here pull stunts like that).

Sadly, the obituary makes it "official" for me.

But what a beautiful memorial that was.

And the most touching item was that even in death, Robin was unselfishly able to help others by being an organ donor.

What a wonderful person.

Truly, a light has gone out in our community . . .

Janette thank you so much for posting Robin's obituary. What a very nice memorial her family did for her.

Thoughts and prayers for Robin's family.

Her daughter Caitlyn will forever be in our hearts.

Thank you for posting the obituary, Janette. It just makes it even more real and tragic to me. Robin will indeed me missed here. What a terrific thing for her to be an organ donor--I have chosen to be a donor on my drivers license as well.

That is a very sweet and sad obituary. Thanks for sharing it.

For the people who wondered about an address to send cards to, I bet you could send them to the funeral directors. My MIL's sister died recently and I know their funeral director received some cards that he forwarded on to the family.
Here's the address from the obituary:
Williams Funeral Directors Family Owned and Operated Since 1885 716 Main St. Garland TX 972-276-5000

Thank you Sue for that suggestion, I'm sure it would work.

Robin's mother wrote the obituary. I've told her how touching and beautiful it was. She said she'd try to check in with us sometime but just can't right now.

I just found all of this today. How sad! I always assumed Robin was older, with all she had been through. Prayers for Caitlyn.

That is one of the most beautiful and touching obituaries I have ever read.
I totally agree. I am sitting here in tears. I am still in shock over this.
My heart goes out to Caitlyn & Robin's family.
