Uncle Bob, 2016

We’re with him and we’re laughing.  We’re with him and we’re crying.  We’re with him and we’re pained because no matter what you prepare yourself for you are never old enough or ready enough to say, “good bye.”  We carry our memories and we carry our hearts on our sleeves.  We cherish our final words.  We cling to each other like sea anchors dragging in the water from the bow of a boat to keep that bow pointing into the waves to lessen the leeway because this is what we learned to do from the original professor and scholar of Death and Dying.
