Abigail Oliver Robinson, known as “Abby” by most and as “Munchkin” by her father, was born on November 16, 2016 at Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, Texas, and passed away on July 6, 2017, also at Texas Children’s Hospital. Abigail’s curiosity and loving demeanor displayed such potential for greatness and goodness that her loss is, though they do not know it, the world’s to share with her family. Abigail was an avid student of everything around her; she was especially fond of watching butterflies, reading books with her parents, playing with her friends Frank the Giraffe and Sheldon Turtle, and, most of all, cuddling with her mother. Abigail’s impact on those around her far outpaced her short time on earth; she made everyone who encountered her smile, and she made and will continue to make her parents very proud and very happy. She is survived by her loving parents, Jill Oliver Robinson and Professor Scott Robinson of Houston Baptist University, as well as a large extended family that includes one great-grandmother, four grandparents, two aunts and two uncles, three cousins, many great-aunts and uncles, and two devoted companions, Mo the tortoise and the Buzz-kitty.
