Doris Robinson (Mrs. Eddie Robinson)

"He was like Mount Fuji in Japan. He was always there, and he was always majestic," said Marino H. Casem, former football coach and athletics director at Southern and Alcorn State universities.

Welcome famous widow Doris Robinson wife of famous legendary Grambling Coach Eddie Robinson to the club nobody wants to join.

Doris and Eddie began their courtship in Baton Rouge when they were both 13 and in the seventh grade. That relationship continued through their high school years. Doris's parents sent her to a boarding school 124 miles away to break them up.

Eventually they went to the same college, transferred to another when Eddie felt the football coach was ignoring him, married and became Louisiana royalty.

Coach Robinson died April 3, 2007. He was 88 years old.

Mourning Quote:

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." --Abraham Lincoln

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open your joy-nal. Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember we're not alone.
