To Those I Love

When I am gone, release me, let me go. You musn’t tie yourself to me with tears. Just be happy that we had so many years. I gave you my love, you can only guess, How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now it’s time I traveled alone. So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart. I won’t be far away, for life goes on, So if you need me, call, and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear All of my love around you, soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile, and say “Welcome Home.”

Bob and I went fishing together when he was going to Pharmacy School at Idaho State University. I was perhaps 8-12 years old and this would have been about 1962. He worked for my father Irv Maag at Maag Prescription Center in Pocatello. We fished at Whisky Mike's area along the Portneuf and also in the stream by Sterling, Idaho.

Bob always had that great laugh that showed he was a happy person. We worked together, he was a pharmacy student and I was a pre-teenager.
