First and foremost for me at least, Robbie was my mother. Despite raising me and my sister without our fathers in the picture we never felt less than. She ALWAYS ensured we were clean, well fed, and able to hold our head up proud. She was always so proud of us, and invested into us 100%. Everything good in me is something she placed there. And you could not ask for a more deadicated mother.
Robbie Smith was dutiful servant of the Lord. She loved everyone and fully walked the walk of Christ. She was always there with a smiling face to welcome new members, would often use her own time/money to ensure folks would have bibles, breakfast was set up when folks arrived, and some of the various other unseen work that goes on behind the scenes.
On Thursday Nov 30th, while working her job as ticket attendent Robbie had an asthma attack that caused her heart to stop. Though it was evetually restarted 14 minutes later at the hospital the damage to her brain was too great for her to recover. She finally passed over Wednesday morning at 2:00am.
Always a giver, in accordance with her wishes; her liver, kidneys, and heart all went to those in need. While her lungs and other organs went to research so even in death, she could continue helping those who needed it the most.
What your donations are going towards:
-Helping the family with the unexpected funeral costs (aproximately $3,500 total) to ensure she gets the final send off she deserves.
-Robbie loved Christmas, and her 3 year old granddaughter Zaya more than anything. So we'd like to ensure in spite of every thing we're still able to provide a memorable Christmas for Zaya.
-In dealing with grief and all the logisitics of having a parent die, her son Tyberius had to take serveral days off work. Some of the excess funds would go to the unglamourous realities of paying bills and keeping the lights on.
-Donations of any amounts would be appreciated.
-We need the money for the funeral by December 15th, but we will keep donations open for a while.
