Prayer request: My Sister-in-law, Barbara Robinson has passed away
March 24, 2008 | Jim Robinson

My sister-in-law, Barbara Robinson, passed away on Saturday. She had been suffering from cancer for several months. She had underwent radiation therapy and they thought it was gone, but it came back a couple months later and caused much pain and suffering before it took her life. She was a devoted wife, mother and dear friend. My brother, Don Robinson, is heartbroken and feeling lost. They had been sweethearts since they first met as teenagers. They had been married for over forty years. He and his family are in need of prayer.

Barbara also leaves her surviving children, Jeanette Draper and Jackie Harris and grandson Eric Robinson. Her son Don Jr. preceded her in death. She also leaves her loving father Lawrence Baker and brothers Mike, David and Timothy and sister Kathy. The Robinson and Baker families have been very close these last forty plus years. We’ve traveled and camped together from one end of California to the other. Barbara was like a mother to us all. She cared for us and looked out for us. She was always there when anyone needed her. She especially looked out for me and Sheila after she had her stroke. She came over three times a week to help Sheila bathe and dress, cleaned our house and fixed our lunch. And, as I was working at my desk, she made sure my cup or glass was never empty. She was a great and loving friend to us all. We will remember her always.

God bless.

I lost my mother to cancer nine years ago, now I have a new mother (my dear MIL) and she too has a cancer diagnosis and a big battle ahead.

I know how this feels, and your family will be in my prayers.

My sincerest sympathies Jim. My mother passed away from cancer a couple of years ago, and she and my dad had recently enjoyed a cruise for their 48th wedding anniversary just before the cancer really came on with a vengeance. There was a great deal of comfort in knowing that she no longer has to endure any pain, and we will see her again someday in the presence of our Lord.

Prayers up Jim. May your brother Don be comforted in the sure knoweldge that he and his sweetheart will be together again someday, and may the entire family be strengthened in her absence, that the missing may rest more easily on their souls.

May Barbara's soul be rested in the arms of our Savior and our Father in Heaven. She is past the ills and cares of this world now.

In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Prayers sent. Praise the Lord, Barbara's suffering is ended, but I grieve for Don. My hubby and I have been sweethearts since I was 14. We will celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary this August. Both of us wish to go first as we can't imagine being alone. Special prayers for Don in his sorrow.

Father, we lift to you these prayer requests; That you give comfort and strength to all the family affected by the passing of this dear loved lady.

We pray that you would bless this family, give them the strength that they need to recover from their grief, give them the comfort of knowing that this lady has now passed on to a better place than she was, let them give thanks that she is no longer in pain but is now rejoicing in your glorious presence.

We pray that they would know that her soul is no longer bound to the earthly body that caused her such pain but is now in the love that transcends all things, including death.

Give them strength, Father, give them comfort, make them secure in the knowledge that she still loves them and that you love them all.

In the name of your son, Jesus Christ,
Amen
