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. Weve 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.
Special prayer request for Jim Robinson’s brother and his family.
Please post your prayers to Jim.
Thanks and God Bless
Condolences and Prayers of comfort and strength to the Robinson family.
I hope they will find comfort in the fact that she is now in a place that is free of pain and cancer. God rest her soul.
Prayers for the Robinson folks
My prayers are with your family, especially your brother.
I am sorry for your loss.
I’m very sorry,Sir.
May Barbara RIP. Prayers up for Don and the rest of the family as well.
We are praying for Don and all of the Robinson family. His peace a grace be with you all.
I am sorry Jim. Prayers for your whole family that He who loves us beyond all will comfort you.
Prayers for Don and yourself.
Of which, as Paul said, 'we have hope toward God (who cannot lie) that there shall be a resurrection of the dead'.
Although this is a sorrowful parting, may the LORD strengthen Don and his family to see the Light of eternity that glimmers brightly through the storm clouds of today.
Prayers for Barbara and all who miss her. I’m sure she is smiliing, from above, on those who loved her.
Lord Jesus, we pray for the family of Barbara Robinson in their time of loss. May Your Spirit comfort and strengthen them. As her spirit is committed into Your eternal care, so may all of us commit ourselves to You as if eternity were already upon us. We pray in Jesus’ Name; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
I pray that you reveal Yourself to Don in this sorrowful time. We know that ‘our ways are not Your ways; our thoughts not Your thoughts’ and so, as things happen in life that we don’t understand or can’t reconcile with an awesome, loving God, we need to know you’re there to carry us through and fill the emptiness that’s left with your love, guidance, wisdom, peace, serenity and hope.
In Jesus’ name we pray.
We will keep your family lifted up in prayers from the heartland. Please accept our most sincere sympathy.
Prayers for you and your family.
Prayers up. May the Lord welcome His faithful one in heaven, and comfort His grieving ones here on earth.
Blessed is the Truthful Judge. My condolences to you and your whole family. May Barbara’s soul be a source of blessing for all of your family, and may you all derive additional comfort from all the good that you do and have done on this earth.
