Remembering Robin…

Lots of folks headed to the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament today to remember New York Times reporter Robin Toner, who passed away recently from colon cancer.

It was described to us as “heartbreaking,” especially when Robin’s husband, LA Times’ chief economic correspondent Peter Gosselin, delivered a powerful eulogy, addressing it directly to the couple’s 11-year-old twins, Jacob and Nora.

As for notable attendees: Bill Keller, Jill Abramson, Rick Berke and Jonathan Landman from the Times’ New York mothership. Also, Bob Schieffer, Cokie and Steve Roberts, Dan Balz, Todd Purdum and Dee Dee Myers and Terry Hunt.

Barack Obama wrote a letter, which was read aloud to the congregation.

On the day Toner passed, the Times held a private, informal gathering in the DC bureau, in which glasses were raised in her honor and stories were told.
