    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.

    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.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I just signed the guest book and loved reading the other posts from others from here on the DIS. I used Robin's story about Pennies from heaven today when talking to a patient who had just lost her cousin after a very short illness. I cried again telling her about it as I have reading all these posts about Robin and Caitlyn. It gave her some comfort though and that was a blessing. Thank God for these DIS boards and all those who post on them.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to go, but I'll continue to pray for them. :(

    Thank you for posting this. My heart breaks for the family and her wonderful little girl. I was just thinking about her the other day.

    What a beautiful tribute to her daughter. How she wrote that, in her shock, is beyond me. Robin was a special person all right. We were honored to have met her here.

    The visitation was very nice. I was able to talk to Jennifer, Robin's Mom (Ellen) and grandma too. :) Several other members of Robin's family was there also, it was great to meet and talk to them. Robin touched so many lives.

    They are still pretty shaky but as well as can be expected. I told them that many people want to send something for Caitlyn and that I would have it sent to me and I'll meet them for lunch or something so I can pass everything on to them. Maybe by then they'll even be able to have Caitlyn with them. So anyone that needs my address PM me and I'll send it to you.

    You can also send cards directly to the funeral director.

    I'm so heartbroken. I didn't realize how very young she was! Makes me feel so selfish now that I posted about the end being near for my dear mother. :( God Bless Robin's family & help them through this very dark hour.

    Thank you for posting the wake/funeral information. If I lived closer, I would be going to pay my respects to Robin's family.

    I wasn't able to meet Robin, as I'm fairly new here, but here's a little something (as I seem to be the poetry queen) - so young, so loved, so special.

    When tomorrow starts without me


    When tomorrow starts without me,
    And I'm not there to see;
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    All filled with tears for me;
    I wish so much you wouldn't cry
    The way you did today,

    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn't get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    And each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too;

    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,
    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye,
    For all my life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    So much yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all the love we shared,
    And all the fun we had.

    If I could relive yesterday,
    Just even for awhile,
    I'd say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be
    For emptiness and memories,
    Would take the place of me.

    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked
    through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.

    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne,
    He said "This is eternity,
    And all I've promised you."
    Today for life on earth is past,
    But here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day's the same way
    There's no longing for the past.
    But you have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times you did some things,
    You knew you shouldn't do.
    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you're free.
    So won't you take my hand
    And share my life with me?

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don't think we're far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart

    Yeah, it is beautiful - I didn't write it of course, I just seem to have a knack for picking/finding the right poem/words for a given circumstance......

    I'm truly saddened by this, even though I never was fortunate enough to meet her.

    That poem was so lovely Adrianna, and so appropriate too. Of course after I cried, I found it to be comforting....... because there will be no more illness, or uncertainty, or sadness.......

    Thank you.
