Gibb's widow: I listen to his songs every day

Robin Gibb

Robin Gibb's grieving widow listens to his music every day.

The Bee Gees singer died in May after a battle with liver cancer. He was 62.

His wife Dwina still lives in their Thame, Oxfordshire home, now a shrine to her late husband of 32 years.

"In the evenings we spent a lot of time talking, and I miss that,' she told UK newspaper The Mirror.

The 59-year-old matriarch has over 100 framed photos of the singer. She still makes him tea every morning.

But she recognises it's a rare gift to always be able to hear his voice.

"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," she acknowledged.

"He may not be here physically but his voice remains everywhere. I take enormous comfort from that."

Dwina is also taking solace in planning a star-studded memorial concert for Robin, who was working on a classic piece called Titanic Requiem at the time of his death.

It's a song she says she will cherish forever.

"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.
