    I would like to tell all the oldies here that Robin Costello - Dels wife passed away at 3am this morning.

    She has been plagued with blood clot issues the past few months but I'm not sure of the details of her passing.

    RIP my dear friend...your wonderful talent with the written word will be missed.

    ETA: Bennet aka Zurg is in the process of compiling all the Reports and stories we can find. After we get them together we will be sure to post some where that they will be easily accessible.

    For those that were asking there is a group who is in the process of setting up a memorial fund and doing some fund raising. If your interested in more info feel free to PM me and I can give you the info.

    Oh my gosh, I am shocked. I knew that she had been ill, this is just tragic. She was an amazing writer and an amazing wife, mother, grandmother and friend and she is gone way too soon. I had the pleasure of meeting here a few years ago, talking with her in PM's a few times and even bought some things from her ebay auctions when she was raising money to move to FL. In fact I wear the hat I bought from her all the time.

    LYMI Wobin. :sad1: May you RIP. Much love and prayers to your family and friends.
