Michelle Obama shares emotional message from her brother after he read about their father in her book 'Becoming'
Former first lady Michelle Obama took to her Instagram handle and shared "one of the best texts" that she has ever received from her older brother regarding their father's death while she continued her 'Becoming' book tour in London.
Michelle posted the contents of the text from her brother Craig Robinson on Sunday evening along with the caption, "I'm traveling in Europe right now for my #IAmBecoming tour and my brother just sent me one of the best texts I’ve ever received." Her brother Robinson had sent, "As I sit listening to the words of your book for the third time albeit this time by audiobook, it occurred to me that I haven't thanked you for all your memories."
"Since I'm the one who is supposed to remember everything, I realized I have blocked out everything regarding dad's death. I was here crying and laughing at the sadness of the story and the comfort of your voice all I can think of is how much I love my little sister. Thank you," he continued.
Michelle was seen in London on Sunday and shared that their father Fraser C. Robinson lll, "gave us absolutely everything." On her Instagram handle, Michelle wrote, "The laughs and lessons, the hugs, the heartache from losing him — they’re all still there with me, every minute. Each of us has our own perspectives and emotions; our own journeys in the moment and in the years since. And that’s why it’s so important to share our stories with each other — not just to remember, but to connect. Even an ocean away. Love you, big brother."
It was only last week that Michelle had shared pictures of her and her brother playing baseball when they were both children. She captioned the photograph, "For as long as I can remember, my big brother Craig has always had my back. He's still one of my best friends today. Thanks for always coming out swinging for me, Craig! #NationalSiblingsDay."
Michelle is currently on a world tour to promote her memoir 'Becoming' which is on its way to becoming the bestselling memoir of all time after selling more than 10 million copies. She will be seen in Paris and Amsterdam next week, after which she will make an appearance in Canada and the United States over the next month.
