A Celebration

I have been reading all of the heartfelt messages of love and support for Robin from countless friends, both while he lived out his final days, and in the past few days since he passed. Please allow me to share my deep appreciation of this love. It has sustained me, and I know that it filled Robin’s heart with gladness. Actually – it has caused me to sob gut-wrenching tears of grief. I didn’t realize it would hurt this much. But thanks none-the-less.

Robin died in his home where he wanted to be, surrounded by love.

A few hours after he passed, a cheeky little Red Robin made a most timely appearance on the wires outside our front window. It stayed for several minutes, dancing and turning and shaking its little butt for us to admire – ‘make no mistake’ it seemed to say, ‘I am well and dancing’. We all felt it's cheery presence and were gladdened for a moment.

A Celebration of Robin’s Life will be held on Saturday January 23 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm at Sanford Hall in Kwomais Point Park

1367 128th St, Surrey, BC
