Another Angel in Heaven

Robin Rozier Groff April 4th, 1977- April 11th, 2008

I have been sitting here trying to find the right words to say. When we lost Robin, we lost a beautiful daughter, a loving mother, a loyal sister, a dear wife and an amazing friend. Robin and I both went through two marrow transplants and we planned on surviving this ordeal together. It wasn't supposed to happen this way. She was full of life. I am too heartbroken to write anything more.

Here is the message from the updates on Robin Groff’s website .

Family and Friends- after a courageous battle, Robin went home to live with our Heavenly Father tonight. None of us ever wanted this day to come, but we find peace knowing that she is free of this terrible illness and surrounded by family and friends who have preceded her in death. Thank you so much for all of the love, prayers, thoughts, cards, emails, etc. over the past 2 1/2 years that have meant so much to Robin, Jason, Hailey, and our extended family. I will update the website as funeral arrangements are finalized.

Please pray for Robin and her family, especially for her little girl, Hailey.

I just went to Robin's website and read "Robin's Journey" from beginning to end. Her trials and tribulations really put everything into perspective. God bless Robin for her grace, courage and strength. And may He comfort her family.

Sending you love and hugs,

Christine, In my meditation tonight I will certainly send her love. I believe her smile is a reflection of the beauty of her soul. How wonderful you got to share a snap shot of time with her while she inhabited a body.

Sending you love while I know you will grieve because you'll miss her.

Robin was very fortunate to have you as a friend and a symbol of hope.

My prayers and tears are with Robin. For someone I never met in person, I feel very sad for her passing.

Time to work to help save more lives.

I'm heart broken, especially for little Halley. I read that she told her mom that she believed "the kemia" would be gone when she was ten.

You are so right that this "is not supposed to happen."
