We lost a Great man my brother Bob who will be missed VERY MUCH!!!!!
This guy is a superhero if I ever met one . At the age of 17 was hit on a motorcycle by a car that blew a red light paralyzed from the neck down , was told he would never be able to walk or pretty much do anything, yet was able to walk with a walker after several years, drive a car , a three wheeler, play catch with me , work a full time job, Live on his own , get married , have kids , retire with a full pension, have grandkids and be a Great role model !!!!!!
He never gave up on himself or anyone else. I LOVE this guy and will miss him more than he will ever know and will never forget all he has done for me in my life which I could never repay !!!!!!
Bob I LOVE YOU and MISS you already , I will definitely miss my phone calls of him asking me where is my long lost brother !!!!!!
Please pray for his family and our family who is having a really tough time with this !!!!
