Marie Robinson, lost her 4-year-old son, Jack Robinson, to brain cancer.
The story of his struggle to survive and the pain of his family, had already made news when Jack lost his battle, however this time, the story that flooded the networks has to do with hope, faith, and a belief that life doesn't end with death. Instead, this story supports the fact that, in reality, families can be eternal.
Marie was going through a difficult emotional time on the third anniversary of her son's death. The pain had not yet dissipated, and she decided to make a request to heaven.
She remembers she sat in her car before going into the cemetery and with all her faith said:
"Jack, please show Mummy a sign."
Something that no one could have expected happened as soon as she sat at the foot of her son's grave
"Can't believe what just happened. I come to see my precious boy Jack, just sat down on ground next to him and this happened. Yes it brought me to tears. Taking it as a sign from jack" Marie said through aFacebook post.
No one would take it as something different; her son and heaven gave her the sign
She captured the incredible moment on video when her son and heaven sent her the clearest signal a mother going through pain could experience. The post of this mother was shared more than 113,000 times, 33,000 people commented and at least 220,000 reacted to this proof that families are eternal.
Robins have appeared many times since Jack's death, and in December of the year Jack died a friend posted a picture of a meme that said "A feather, a robin, a butterfly too, are all signs your angels are standing with you."
Just at my little jacks garden garden and I turn to one side and on to of the hedge is a sweet little robin watching me...
Whatever your beliefs, to me this story filled my eyes with tears. I have no doubt that Jack was trying, in the way he could, to comfort his mother and give her hope that he is listening. Although his body is not alive he is there and, most likely, they will one day be together forever.
