LONDON (AP) — Her sons were blessed with musical gifts that brought riches and fame. On Monday, Barbara Gibb was living a parent’s ultimate nightmare — preparing, for the third time, to lay a child to rest.

Her son Robin Gibb — a Bee Gees founder known for his astonishing vocals and songwriting skills — died Sunday after a long battle with cancer at the age of 62.

Earlier, she had lost her sons Andy Gibb, a pop idol who died in 1988 at age 30 from a heart ailment, and Maurice Gibb, a member of the Bee Gees and Robin’s twin, who died in 2003 of acute intestinal problems.
