It seems that Robin Roberts left ‘Good Morning America‘ just in time. She was not scheduled to leave until today, but decided to leave a day earlier to spend time with her ailing mother. It turned out to be the right thing to do.

Robin Roberts and her sister Sally Ann Roberts traveled through Tropical Storm Isaac to be with their mother, Lucimarian, who passed away Thursday in Gulfport, Mississippi at the age of 88. “It is with deep regret and heavy prayer and reflection tonight that I tell you of the passing of Robin’s beautiful and inspiring mother, Lucimarian.” wrote Tom Cibrowski, executive producer of’ GMA’ in an early morning email to staff. No cause of death was given. She is survived by a son, Butch, and three daughters, Robin, Sally Ann, and Dorothy. The family will hold a small private memorial service.
