    I remember, my friend. I will always remember.

    I remember playing on the dirt pile with Tonka trucks. I remember pretending to be superheroes on the log pile, kicking the kickball into the ‘munions onions’, and sledriding down that tiny icy slope in your backyard. I remember playing little league (your dad calling everybody gumshoe), football, and wrestling together and the endless hours spent playing video games at wrestling tournaments. I remember lifting weights together so we could be like the guys who won the tournaments. I remember playing chess in the woods listening to the Pirates on the radio. I remember fishing for carp in that little pond and what happened at Greeks lake. I remember the overnight squawk box, playing rumble and fumble rumble (and calling out the player we were). I remember how you ate too fast at the birthday party and threw up in the pool. I remember you telling me to ‘shove it in’ so we could get back to playing. I remember playing Dungeons & Dragons and loosing the football for that stupid game where the players moved when the board vibrated. I remember riding our bikes to play baseball all day at Pine Elementary, coming home when we got hungry. I remember summer rec. I remember listening to the Boston, the Doobies, Van Halen, and the Beach Boys. I remember Slomka’s little yapping dog biting our pants when we rode our bikes. I remember the itsa ball. I remember falling into the bush when the guy says ‘I got struck by lightning’. Thanks to your influence I am one of the few people in the world who sometimes unwittingly refer to chipmunks as grinnies. I remember talking about the girls who would one day become our wives before being in each other’s weddings (with your daughter serving as a flower girl in mine). I remember texting pictures of my kids with you and hearing your encouraging comments. I remember receiving Terry Tate videos. I remember that sometimes we didn’t see each other for a long time but when we did it was just like no time had passed at all.
    I remember even more, but I know that you’ll always remember stuff I forgot because you’ve always been like that. Most importantly, I remember hearing with great joy that you accepted Jesus as your savior. That means that someday we can add to the list things I remember in person. I will look forward to that day until it comes.

    I love you, my friend. Thank you for being my friend, forgiving my screw ups, and for all of the awesome memories.

    P.S. See if you can get approval for a snow football game when I get there.

    Although I didn’t get to know Bob really well, he supported Lin Garcia and me in our fundraisers for Pathways of Hope and was a really great guy to be around. I will miss him.
