Bob-a-roo

I knew him only from the pages of Blogland.

For 4 years he faithfully followed my blog smattering my comment box with humor and encouragement.

His name was Bob. I referred to him as Bob-a-roo. Bob seemed too plain a name for such a warm, wonderful human being.

I received the news tonight I knew was coming yet it speared through me.

Bob lost his fight and slipped from this world.

I cannot imagine not seeing another post from him.

I cannot fathom not ever seeing his name pop into my comment box, never failing to bring me a smile even on my darkest of days.

He will be missed.

God. Will be missed? I miss him already.

I know life has to end at some point but I was not ready to lose Bob-a-roo.

My friend.

This is very sorrowful. Bob, in the face of a lot of adversity, always had a kind thing to say. He will be missed.

Yes, he will be missed....So sad.
And I agree it will take time to get used to not seeing his comments.
