I cannot imagine the pain of losing Robin so soon. My thoughts are with you at this time. I want to send this poem by Mary E Wright in remembrance of Robin.

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

--Mary Elizabeth Frye

Eternally, Forever, Panache 25!

Our bond as “Sands” is STRONG and our love for one another is REAL!

May we find comfort in knowing that Robin is resting in her father’s arms and as we remember that those that live in the hearts of others never die our #13, our “Lifesaver”, our Robin will be with us always!

Praise GOD from whom all blessings flow. Praise him Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Prayers and thoughts go out to all of the family, church family, and close friends that God will keep us and that his love surround us during these most difficult times.

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms…”
--Deuteronomy 33:27

To: Family, Friends, and Sorors...We thank God and give Him praise for allowing us to spend a few short years with one of His angels named Robin. She was so beautiful inside and out. We all loved her and will miss her sweet spirit. May He give comfort and peace to all.

Ben, Courtney and Chaz,

I was so heartbroken to hear of Robin's passing. Ever since I was a little girl it was always Ben and Robin. She is definitely going to be missed. I am so sorry that I am unable to be there (I explained in my voicemail. I hope you understand). Ben, just like we talked about on the phone last week, I am so grateful that I was able to spend time with her while I was in Indy. I still remember how hard she laughed at the comedy show... her laugh was so contagious. She laughed so hard she bounced between me and Ben with tears coming down her face. That was such an amazing time and I thank you for including me. I am grateful for that memory of Robin. I am sending love to all of you.... Tori

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Robin. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible's promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.
