One-in-a-Million Friend

DaGoddess @ 04:00

Rob’s been gone for three years today. It doesn’t seem possible. There are times when I still hear his voice or I think I see him somewhere.

Some people are timeless, dimensionless. I think he’ll always straddle here and beyond, knowing it both frustrates and delights those he visits.

Memories of him are vivid (even without archives). I can hear the laughter he and Quinton shared as they “wrassled” on the couch and waged wet willy wars. I can remember, too, the heartbreak when Rob was denied his son. Sometimes you just don’t get over something like that. I hope somehow, some way, he’s at peace and watching over his boy with pride. And I hope that he’s keeping everyone busy up there, chasing the cute “wimmen” angels and singing his songs. I know I still hear the music.

I can’t help but chase a tear or two at moments like this.

Southern drawl teases
Who’s your cracker now, darlin’?
Time to pick ‘n’ grin

I miss you, Rob. You were a one in a million friend.

  3. I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing the day he died. Even though I never met him in person, he was like a close friend. I think it was you who turned me on to his site. He was such a rambunctious character. I miss his daily ramblings.
