Grieving parents of Robyn Knox pay tribute to their ‘angel baby’ who died in Dunfermline crash
The parents of a three year-old who died in a road traffic crash in Townhill, Dunfermline have released a statement about the death of their daughter through Police Scotland.
Little Robyn Knox was rushed to Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy after the incident in Main Street, Townhill, Dunfermline, on Monday, August 3, but died a short time later.
Her parents, Danielle Falconer and Barry Knox, said: "On Monday, our lives were shattered into a million pieces and for now we really don’t know how we will ever be back to normal without our princess.
“There are no words to describe the turmoil in our lives at this moment in time and hopefully as time goes on, with all the love and support ourselves and Robyn have been shown, we will get through this.
“This is a time and place that is tough for us to think about at the minute.
"Robyn was the best thing to happen to both of us. She truly was a blessing in our lives and I’m sure many more people would agree.
“We will forever remember the loving, kind, gentle and caring wee soul that blessed our lives with the biggest heart of gold.
“She was super excited to be a big sister at the end of this year and we will make sure her baby twins know about her and speak about her every day.
"Her sassy attitude made her into the little diva she is, it provided her with so much personality and confidence. She was the strongest little person we ever met, right until the very last second.
"We hope we can carry that strength with us.
"Robyn was just beginning her journey in the freestyle dance world and she would have conquered it with her confidence, determination and resilience.
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who tried to save our baby girl, we can never thank you enough.
"We would also like to thank everyone who has shown so much love and support towards our baby girl, it has touched us to see the lasting impression she has left on so many people’s lives. She was, and always will be, an absolute diamond.
"We love you unreal amounts baby girl. We hope you keep dancing up there and giving everyone attitude like you did us.
"This is not a goodbye, it is a see you soon. Mummy and Daddy love you until the end of the earth and more. Sleep tight our angel baby."
A crowdfunding page set up by Robyn’s uncle, Paul Marshall, has been flooded with donations.
It has netted almost £4000 to help with funeral costs, while, next week, Paul plans to walk the West Highland Way in Robyn’s memory, and raise further funds.
On the appeal page, he wrote: “ Robyn was only three years old and had her whole life ahead of her. I am hoping to raise some funds for her funeral to help give our little princess the send off she deserves.”
Police said inquiries were continuing into the circumstances, and have appealed to any motorists with dash cam footage of the area at the time to get in touch.
