My Hubby, Cassie's Daddy, our Rock passed away Monday night.
Edited on Thu Nov-05-09 11:02 AM by GigiMommy
I'm sorry I didn't write earlier. It happened so fast. Robert (Rob to everyone) hadn't been feeling well (hip/back pain) for about a month. After a doctor visit, he was told "muscle spasms". It never went away. He left for North Carolina to do the Wake Forest game last weekend. He'd call me to say how much he was hurting, I told him to come home. Stubborn as a bull, he said it would get better. Saturday, he had chest pains. They took him to the emergency. After blood work, they found that he had Leukemia but they didn't know what kind. Monday, they took a bone marrow biopsy and we were waiting for the results but he took a turn in the afternoon. I can't go on right now but he passed away Monday evening. Cassie's stronger than me. She's a tough little girl. I miss him so much.

Oh I forgot, we're trying to establish an Educational fund for Cassie.

2. Oh Gigimommy
I am so very sorry.
My heart and prayers go out to you and your beautiful little girl.
This is so sudden and sad. I just don't even know what to say.
Please let me know where I can help with Cassie's fund in whatever way I can.

4. Did I ever tell you that you are my Fave?
I am so sorry about your loss.

If I knew the words to take the pain away, I would say them.

If there was some act I could do to make you and your family feel better, I would do it in a heartbeat.

Sadly there is nothing I can do or say that can help you right now outside of telling you that you will
make it through these tough times and you will always have a friend in me and the KOEB.

Let me know about the fund when you can.

7. Oh no!
I am so very, very sorry for your loss, and wish that I were there physically to give you and Cassie a big hug, and a shoulder to cry on.
Hang on to each other, and grieve your loss in the way that is best suited for each of you. And, as always, we will be here for you, if you need to talk, to cry, to simply know that someone out there cares.

I love you both. I'm PM'ing you my phone number, if you want to talk in person.
Love, Ruth

:hug: :hug: :hug:

11. Oh Gigi, I am so sorry.
My heart goes out to you and your darling Cassie. I wish I could be there, with a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen. I'm here, as best I can be, as is everyone else.

Take care of your beautiful girl, and let others take care of both of you. My love to you both.
