After four new tires this morning we have hit the road for Mike's hometown of Crossett, Arkansas. The service for his father will be Wednesday with a graveside following. The family has decided that in lieu of flowers that donations can be sent to UVA children's hospital earmarked for pediatric cancer. Checks can be made out to UVA Rectors and Visitors for Pediatric Oncology. Please add the name Ricky Robinson to the memo line. The address is:

We are so thankful for the love and emails we have received. Mike and his brother Daniel are comforted that he passed peacefully in his sleep and did not suffer. We hate it will be under these circumstances, but the kids are excited to see their cousins and other family. Mike has not been back to his hometown in many years so Kyle is excited to see his Daddy's old stomping ground.
We see that God has been so mericful in this whole situation. Mike and Daniel are shocked and sad, but we are all blown away how God has provided in this situation already.
We are almost to Memphis where we will stay tonight. The ride has been gorgeous with the changing leaves across Tennessee. Thank you for your prayers and love.
