|Let the memory of Robin be with us forever|
"Day by day I think of you,
How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone,
I still can't accept it,
Even after so long.
Just the thought of you makes me cry,
I never even got the chance to say goodbye.
Every picture, every letter,
I don't know if it will ever get better.
I always smell your familiar scent,
It makes me think of all of the times we've spent.
I know we didn't always get along,
And every time we talked, it would always go wrong.
So many things I never got to say,
I never imagined you'd ever be so far away.
You were my brother,
And I loved you like no other.
In my heart you'll always be,
You'll be my guide and help me see.
I'll never forget your soothing voice,
I would take your place if I had a choice.
But now I have to let you rest,
Although without you my world's a mess.
I miss you with all of my heart,
I wish we never had to part.
I know you're always by my side,
So now I guess this is my goodbye..."
"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
"It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived."
"Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.
"Following message was sent to you by Jemma Ali from the ForeverMissed.com online memorial dedicated to Robin Francis Ali:
Miss YOU Robin. Not an hour goes by in the day that you don't enter my mind. I'll never ever forget you.... You will always be my big brother who looked after me until the end."
"He did his total best for all those years babe, and he did so well. I'll say one thing Kristie I was ever so proud of your bro. I loved him dearly.
Robin was the most loving, caring person anyone could ever meet, I'll cherish my memories in my heart forever. Xxxxxxxx xxxxxx Celia Penrith xxx"

Genuinely hurt by events ,so sorry for ur loss ,he truly was a good man !!! If ever I can b ov service please let me know. DARRON TAPS TAPPER. X"
"Dear Kristie, I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for posting the 'young Robin' photo, there have been so many photos of Rob since he passed away, almost all have made me cry but this photo and his cheeky face made me smile. Robin was a good guy and was loved by many down here in Bournemouth. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. From Michelle Diddy Dobson x"
I knew Robin from the meetings in Bournemouth he came into recovery not long after me and we were on a committee for around a year together. Both my partner and I were so shocked and saddened to hear that Robin had passed away, he was always the first one to approach the new man who walked through the door and his enthusiasm for recovery was contagious.as I'm sure you know, He helped a lot of people and when he shared his experience he inspired others. Nothing was to much for him and when I moved back to Brighton I asked him to come down and do a share for me, he travelled both there and back by train ( which took nearly 3 hours each way). Robin was such a likeable person and will be missed by so many.
Thinking of you all ❤️

"Hi Kirstie, sorry to hear that and there but for the grace of God go I. He always had a huge heart and he certainly helped me at times. I know some of his struggles yet he always made time. I remember the run up to him getting his dogs and him building there kennel/hotel in the garden he was like a big child. He also used to moan at me a lot for driving up the road too fast getting into work but it was always from a caring perspective. Since my mum passed 2 years into my own recovery journey I came to believe that our days on this earth are the dream and when we go to sleep is when we all awake to live our lives, but that is just my thoughts and I take comfort in that. I hope you and the rest of the family are a little more at ease now, not that it will ever be easy I guess. But to be able to close your eyes and be with him will bring some comfort. Thank you for taking the time to message me. My thoughts and prayers with you, warm regards Leigh Pitt wood."
"Hi Kristie, what a beautiful website you have done for Robin. I checked it all out and the photos brought memories of when he was with us. He did have a great smile and sense of humour - in fact I only have memories of him being pretty upbeat and very open. He was a pleasure to see. I'm not surprised he went on to help so many others. I was very sad to hear of his death, it was shocking to us down here. Thank you also for including us in your justgiving site. He wont be forgotten by anyone who knew him here. Yours Tessa (Streetscene Addiction and Recovery Services, Bournemouth. )"
"Following message was sent to you by Jemma Ali from the ForeverMissed.com online memorial dedicated to Robin Francis Ali:
You're still here in my heart and mind,
still making me laugh cause your stories live on.
I hold you in a thought and I can feel you.
I feel you and this gives me strength and courage.
The tears I have cried for you could flood the earth
and I know you have wiped each one away.
For you Brother, I promise you this,
I will go on with my life and make you proud. I will always hold you in my heart.
I promise you I will be missing you everyday till the end of time,
but this is not my end and I can't hold my head underwater....I need to breathe.
I need to love and miss you, but I also need to live because through me you will live,
you will still laugh and love,
you will still sing and dance,
you will still hug and kiss.
You will forever be in our lives,
you will forever be a brother,
I am going to miss your shining face
I think of you and wonder why?
I might cry or smile,
but at the end of the day I am one day closer to you....
Your loving sister jemma xxxx"

"Rest in peace dear Robin ALI
11 October 2016
What a shame to receive the news of such a great man with good qualities sadly passing away at the tender age of 40. My heart reaches out to your family and children at this sad time, I have the greatest memory of Robin the day he interviewed me and wanted us to work together in London with a company I will not name.
Steve & Silvie xx"
"Robin, one of the few genuine authentic souls I have had the privilege to meet and know, genuine hugs, genuinely wanted to know you are OK, always asking several times - but are OK aren't you?, he genuinely did not want others to suffer, he did a lot to help others and in a totally selfless way. Robin was a rare breed of human, a very special soul - an empath - everything he did and felt he did so deeply - especially in his love for his big sis - a special bond that can never be broken - Robin was a true warrior and one of the few humans I actually totally respected. Love you Robin - our hearts will never mend but the memory of you will always stay strong. Namaste Robin - ONE LOVE xxx ♥ xxx - Received From Jodie Ford via Email"
"I miss your bruv, he was such a top fella. The last time I was with Robin I took him to a Bournemouth - Leicester game at b mouth.
We also had American bull dogs in common. I helped him choose his boy with Beth's girl. But how I remember your brother was his heart. He had a big heart , always helping others unconditionally. Missed massively but never forgotten. Stay strong sister love n peace ."

"If only I could reach
Inside your picture
pick you up and hold
you one more time.
But then in my deepest,
dreams I hold a million
pictures and I hold you
a million times more.
Each picture holds a
memory that memory we
will share, but heaven
came and took you and
on earth we cannot share.
But in my dreams I hold
your picture and beside me
you will stare and when
Heaven comes and takes me
our memories we will share."
"My Angel Star
You shine as my darkness falls,
every sunset is your call.
My angel star spreads it’s
Glistening light upon my painful path.
A gentle breeze parts swaying trees
To welcome in your healing light
And Glistening waters reflect your
Eternal heavenly glow upon my gaze
On cloudy nights you shine on bright
Even though your out of sight
On lonely nights I’ll stand and wait
For parting clouds to show you bright
Shine on my Angel in the sky
Throw your light and burn on bright
Every night I will surly wait
Until beside you I can shine a light"
"From your nephew, Jacob
You were like a dad to me, any trouble i could come to you i just cant believe you're gone, i just wish we could of spent more time together, you were my role model and i know i could of come to you for anything. still trying to get over my mind that you're gone but i guess god needs you up there by his side, uncle robin you are loved by many and i will miss you everyday for the rest of my life and i will look after mum for you. until we meet again
R.I.P Robin ali 1976-2016"
"What is a brother?
Someone who is there
when you are hurting
He picks you up
and dusts you off again
What is a brother?
Someone who sees you are without a smile
And he gives you one of his
and gives you a hug too
just especially for you
What is a brother?
Someone who stands by your side
and holds your hand
when things don’t go well
He helps you understand
What is a brother?
A cherished friend for life
a brother by blood
A cousin or friend
But always by love"
"To tribute to your kindness
In words is not enough
To tell of your caring
For me and others is wasting time
To a dear brother of mine
To bridge a gap so wide
As to let me into your heart
When I don’t even know mine
This tribute to you
In love you conquer hate
And within these ugly times
You conquer them with beauty
This tribute to my brother ends
But always will remain true
A Tribute To A Brother"
Although your work on earth is done
Your life in heaven has just begun.
Your struggles here were hard and long
But they're over now, you're finally home.
Life wasn't easy, by choice or fate
A decision made, sometimes too late.
A fight to the finish, always strong
Rest easy Bro, you're finally home."
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
"Absolutely overwhelmed by the love shown for my brother Robin Lcfc Ali. I'd like to thank everyone that has messaged and expressed their condolences. I'm sorry I can't reply to you all individually, my heart is breaking and there are no words to express the pain that I feel. He is, regardless of our petty squabbles and bickering, my best friend, my champion, my biggest fan, my rock and my brother. So from the bottom of my heart, Thank You. Xxxx"
"When I am gone, release me let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness
I thank you for the love you have shown
But now it’s time I travelled alone
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It’s only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart
I won’t be far away. For life goes on
So if you need me call and I will come
Though you can’t see or touch me I’ll be there
And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear
And then when you must come this way alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and welcome you home

"They Say There Is A Reason
They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something,
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without."
"Broski... my children stepped up for me yesterday, they gave me strength, courage and dignity when I could not find my own. They represented me when I stumbled, carried me when I was weak and held me when I sobbed and broke my heart for you. I know that you taught all of your nieces and nephews those skills, as they all behaved as you would like them to. Each and everyone of them adore, worship, respect and love you. They always have and they always will. Nothing will ever change that. ⭐❤
(The day after Robins Funeral - 13.10.16)"
"Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care (20.10.16)
Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart."
it is not over, his end
an end with no end
how you live around
the emptiness, he
used to fill
the corner where
his ashes sit
the candle you light
when the family gathers
a flickering remembrance
you have to blow out
at the end of the day
the sentences you stop
where you might make
his absence an intruder
you cannot let go"
"I never got a chance to say goodbye
And now when I think of you all I do is cry
You left a message upon my heart
One with which I shall never part
The things you taught me the world will never know
And now thanks to you I can finally grow
You taught me strength, you taught me courage
You taught me love and gave me knowledge
You made me smile when the tears poured down
You helped me to turn my life around
We hurt each other it is true
But for the rest of my life I will always love you"
"Zayne and lay Miss u but will grow with u in the hearts and will never forget their uncle their godfather one of the most amazing human beings I have ever had the privilege to meet and grow to call my family - Paris xxx"
"Miss you so much xxx"
My memories are what I have left,
and a lesson I will not forget.
The time has come when time is no more
and all that's left was once before.
The memories so dear and true,
those memories of me and you.
Although we fell and stumbled at times,
all those hills were necessary climbs.
All the times when your heart shined through,
Are the greatest memories I have of you.
I will always remember you, brother of mine
in my heart I will keep you, so I will be fine.
I will go forward with my head up high,
it might be hard, I cannot lie.
But in my heart you will be,
moving forward, you with me."
"My brother and friend. Love you lots xxxx"
