Dwina Gibb still makes tea for Robin everyday

London - Robin Gibb’s widow Dwina has revealed that she makes the late singer a cup of tea every morning and keeps his book by his side of the bed.

Unlike most grieving widows, when Edwina, known as Dwina, misses her late husband she only needs to turn on the radio to hear him.

She also plays Bee Gees’ CDs every day, unable – and unwilling – to move on from Robin’s death six months ago.

Sipping a hot drink in front of a log fire in the cluttered sitting room of their 12th-century home, Dwina is still visibly affected by her loss.

“In the evenings we spent a lot of time talking, and I miss that,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

“When I find things like his hospital bracelets, things of suffering, it’s really hard,” she said.

Dwina, 59, finds solace from continuing Robin’s charity work for Coming Home – a group that helps badly injured soldiers – as well as the messages she gets from Robin’s friends, family and celebrity fans.

Next spring she is hoping to hold a star-studded memorial concert, and is confident John Travolta, Elton John and Barbra Streisand will be involved.

Dwina, a practising Druid priestess, said: “John Travolta called the hospital and spoke to Robin when he was there, and was lovely after he died. So many well-known friends have been in touch, and the messages are still flooding in.

“Also, while most people may have an old answerphone message of their loved one’s voice if they’re lucky, I can watch Robin’s old videos, and turn on the radio and listen to him singing.

“It feels like something divine to me. I’m going to listen to his voice every day for the rest of my life,” she said.

Dwina’s sprawling home – a former monastery in Thame, Oxfordshire – is now a shrine to Robin, with more than 100 framed photos of him in the living room alone.
