My beautiful niece, Robin Rozier Groff, last night passed from this life into the next. She was such an inspiration to so many, many people. She will always be loved and remembered and dearly missed, and we all look forward to being with her again. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the Plan of Salvation.

What Is This Thing That Men Call Death”
By President Gordon B. Hinckley

What is this thing that men call death,
This quiet passing in the night?
'Tis not the end, but genesis
Of better worlds and greater light.

O God, touch thou my aching heart,
And calm my troubled, haunting fears.
Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure,
Give strength and peace beyond my tears.

There is no death, but only change,
With recompense for vict'ry won.
The gift of Him who loved all men,
The Son of God, the Holy One.

What a beautiful message this song is and what comfort it brings to all who endure a loved one's passing. Your message is a sweet one.

That is an awesome poem! Thanks you for giving me your blog address and letting me know about Robin. Paul and I LOVE your family! Hearing about Robins death has made me sadder then any other death I've been aware of. I know she is in a wonderful place and all things happen for a reason and everything will work out but ........ I feel sad for her family and for Robin. Being a mother of a young family, I can't even imagine how hard it must have been for Robin to leave her loves behind!:( Thank heavens we have the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation to lean on!!!

I put you on my side bar so I can pop in on your blog. I wish I had more time to read it right now. Time for me to hop in the shower. Thanks again Jill. I consider myself lucky to be able to call you my friend!
