Our Robin

Robin mono

Yesterday (the 24th) we received a heavy, devastating burden of news.

In memory of our sweet Robin who lived with us, a friend, a sister,  a devoted aunt to little Lucy,  a daughter,  my wonderful  “American” daughter, and my daughter’s best friend, -our hearts are broken. 

Robin's Rose

You came into our lives like a shooting star
and you have left the same way.
We had no idea you would streak by us so fast
On your journey through the universe.
We wanted you to stay longer.

Robin you are a bright light!
laughing out sun beams,
already greeted by the angels who rushed out joyfully to welcome you.
We are the poorer who stay behind,
though richer for knowing you
Rest in peace, our beautiful girl.

goth girls
two crazy  girls- grown up sort of!

We love you and will miss you so much!  We will meet again in some wonderful place!!

I see your “true colours” –

Robin The Road to Awe

    So aggrieved in reading this. What a beautiful poem…”We are the poorer who stay behind,
    though richer for knowing you”

    Aye. The richness of knowing such joy and deep and profound, loving friendship lives on. I am so sorry. My thoughts are avidly with you.

    My condolences on your loss. The tribute was lovely though I am sure compliments mean very little indeed at a time like this. Be strong and know that there are those that truly care for all concerned.
