Dear Dr. Crum, Children, and Family,

I write with a heavy heart grieving the loss of Robin.

It was my please to be Robin’s principal and religion teacher at Bishop Donahue High School. She was one of my favorite students and we shared so much.

Like Robin, I have been fighting cancer since 2002. I am aware of her determination to survive. My cancer is now terminal and I cannot come to the funeral home or attend her Mass.

My sincerest condolences.

May the soul of Robin and all the souls of the faithfully departed rest in the arms of Our Savior and His Mother.

Blessings,

John Miller

Although it has been many years I was saddened to hear of Robin’s passing. She was a light and a personality who was unforgettable.

She graced the world with strength, determination, brains and a joy in life that not many people could match.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;

I am not there. I did not die.

Robin was a wonderful woman and an excellent lawyer. I know she was very proud of her family as she talked about them often. My sincerest condolences go out to her husband and children.

Ed,

I just found out about Robin and it has caused great pain in my heart. I cannot even imagen your and your kid’s pain. Even though I was so bad at keeping in touch, I loved her very much. She was the one person who helped me get through those college years away from my family that were so hard. She was dear as a sister to me and I will never forget her. She will never die because she’ll be in our hearts forever! I have no doubts that she’s with GOD now.

I am so very sorry for your loss but I am sure you were her “Eddy Boy” to her last breath.

Love,

Sonia

Ed,

I am so sorry to hear about Robin. She is one of the first people I came to know when we returned to Wheeling 20 years ago. I watched her grow as she pursued her dream to become an attorney. There were a lot of hurdles and she dealt with them with an amazing sense of humor. It was fun to plan your honeymoon as your travel agent. And then, you did it all over again for your 10th anniversary.

As I write this, I can hear her giggle and picture her with a sparkle in her eyes.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your children at this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear that Robin has passed. I remember her as a smart, funny, vibrant woman. She was always a joy to be around, even during the pressures of law school. She will be greatly missed.

I can’t even begin to express how much I’m going to miss my best friend, Robin. She lived life to the fullest, even in the toughest of times. I’ll always remember the good times we shared, her laugh, her smile, her sense of humor, and her sense of adventure. One of my favorite memories of Robin is when we went parasailing in North Carolina. She came down out of the sky smiling, and singing, and saying that she felt so free. That’s one image of Robin that I’ll never forget. I hope that you all take comfort in knowing that Robin made a real difference in the lives of so many people.

I only learned of Robin’s passing today when I received an email newsletter from the WVU Law School containing her memoriam. Robin was such a joy to know during law school. She always smiled, laughed and was cheerful! Regreattably, we lost touch after graduation. God bless her family and friends. She will be missed.

Joey and I just watched the beautiful video of Robin’s life. We felt all the joy in each picture and Joey says, “Our heart was crying — we loved Robin so much but now she is in Heaven.”

We pray the love and joy that was felt in all those family celebrations — those Loudenslager smiles that are a mile wide — will help take away the sadness you feel today and in the hard days ahead. Much love, Mary Lou K., Chuck and the boys

Robyn was a customer at Catherines

in the Ohio Valley Plaza where I was an Assistant Manager. I remember her as being witty, charming, always laughing and positive. I always looked forward to her visits because she was like a ray of sunshine coming through the door. I will miss her smile, energy, crazy sense of humor and laughter. God bless her,her husband, son and daughter. My deepest sympathies to the family.

The Crum Family,

My daughter attends St. Peter School and brought home the beautiful trinket box with the Rosary inside from Robin. You were blessed to have such a thoughtful/caring woman in your life. For someone to be so thoughtful and caring to send these for the children during her illness she is surely dancing in Heaven. Your family and Robin will be in our prayers. May God Bless you always.
