It’s been 10 years now. It hasn’t been any easier than it was the first year. Bob I need your help! Watch over our son as he finds his way. I’m so lost without him right now. My heart is broken and I can’t do anything but hope and pray he is ok and he is warm. You are missed and I have not forgotten you. Your life mattered and I will always make sure you are remembered.
