I just returned from a two week state-to-state trip. I was in Corpus Christi, where I met one of our special volunteers and talked about Rob, his funeral and his wonderful family. I was in Nashville speaking to students and parents at a prestigious girls' school, talking about things Rob taught me, remembering his gentle tone and touch with those who didn't understand as much as he did.
I miss him.
Now with the craziness of the day quieting down, in the first full night in my house in weeks, I feel his loss a bit more deeply.
I can't imagine how his real life family feels.
Rob, dear friend, I will never forget you...I hope you taught me enough before you left. I will try and make you proud, and be worthy of your title for me "boss".
