We haven't forgotten you Bob! You are missed each and every day. We had good thoughts of you on your birthday, and smiled through our tears while wishing we could sing Happy Birthday to you here and not in Heaven. In a few days it will be 5 long years, but yet feel like yesterday. Son plays JV/Varsity Football now and has passed you up in size :) I know you would be so proud of him and how much he as grown since you left. So many people tell us he is your twin.
It will be 5 years you have been gone soon and I still wish I could wake up and hear your keys in the door, your boots in the hallway, and feel the warmth of the flashlight as you come to check on us late at night. I dream of seeing the dust trail on the hill in the morning sun and hearing your voice over the radio "247 7U 10-7 10-42"
We love you today just as much as we did on that horrible day. Watch over our son and help me keep him safe.
