This is such a hard note to post but ....







my friend Robin lost her battle to cancer tonight. Her family called me about 9:15 pm and said she had just passed away just a few minutes earlier. I am so sad for her kids. They are 14 and 10. Robin has been so sick for so long. I remember when she got the phone call from her mammogram 6 years ago. She had found a lump on her own and went to the dr. The mammogram and ultrasound confirmed her worst fear - breast cancer. She had a masectomy soon after that and started chemotherapy and radiation shortly after. She was one of the unfortunate ones where it metasized to her hip and spine. She always was positive that she would beat it. It had been exactly 6 years to the month. The last month has been the hardest on all of us. She just wasn't able to fight anymore. It had gone to her liver several months ago. I will miss Robin so much. We've been friends since Emily & Shelby were in pre-school together and I liked her right away. When we moved to FL, I kept in touch with her, Mary and Lorraine. We would all go out to dinner when I would come back to visit which was twice a year. The 4 of us ... always went out. We sure had alot of laughs. Now it will be 3 of us... that will be so odd. I will miss Robin!!! PS Robin was ONLY 41 years old.

So sorry to hear about Robin,
as I was told death is good for the one in pain, and so hard on ones left behind. My prayers are with her family and friends, Loretta

Oh Sherri,

I am so sorry for your loss and the grief you and her family are going through. It's up to you to remind her children just how wonderful their mother was from your perspective. Part of Robin will live on in the stories you tell them as the years unfold.

The whole thing just sucks. Take care of you. Gentle hugs.

Sherri-

Somehow I had missed this and I feel very sad for you. I know how close you were and how hard it has been for the last months/weeks.
