Robyn's parents were not too happy about the choice of husband and in the end they were right. It put a rift between her family and her. Her Mom started getting closer to me. It seemed since she had me Rob was a thorn in her side. Robs husband could never keep a job so her family and mine started to help with bills, rent, food, even Vet bills, dog food, etc. Robs Mom and Dad just couldn't afford it. It was putting a huge burden on them. Robs Mom and I became closer as both our families tried to help them out. Rob started saying things like "Your the daughter they always wanted" "Your wedding picture is on my Mom and Dad's bureau", Your better for them then me". We sat down one evening and I could hear the sadness in her voice, that she felt for her Mom. It was then I decided that God had blessed Rob with this beautiful Mom, not me. I slowly bowed out gracefully with their family and Robs Mom began to see her beautiful daughter again without me in the way. I loved Rob and her familyso much I would never hurt her in any way. I hurt so much at first not having Robs family but Rob told me her Mom and her started to mend things together. I stayed away from the family except to talk to them occasionally. Rob and her Mom became best friends. That was 15 years ago. Rob and I stayed best friends all this time. I wanted her to have the Mom I never had. I knew what it was like to be forgotten and never wanted that for her. Her mom was at her side when she passed, and she called me immediately. I miss Rob so much it hurts. She was my very best friend.
