Robin,
My prayers go out to you and entire extended family. I wish I knew the right words to say but just know that you are a strong lady but don’t hesitate to reach out and ask for a shoulder. I know that you and the kids are still in a state of shock but just remember all of the awesome memories that were made in your family and think of those to bring you all strength. You have angel to help you. Again, my prayers for you all.
