Bob - I loved reading Fireworks. It brought back so many good & bad memories. We did have some great times. I am glad you have some good memories. It is too bad that your sister never got to enjoy that time in your life and to know your father. He really was a great guy. I love reading your blog. I know you are very busy :) so you do not get to write often, but, hopefully, you will post another soon. Love Ya!

Bobby...Those years sound amazing! I wish i was there to experience such joy that you did with Mom and Dad. Hearing about him and how wonderful he was warms my heart. Makes me happy to know that i am part of such a good person that i never even knew. You're right, I didn't grow up with a father, but I did grow up with a great big bro, and as far as I'm concerned the closest thing to a father. Also a strong mother who, concidering all problems, did a fine job with both of us. I'm sorry he did what he did and left you. Keep remembering those happy times and stay strong. I'm glad to see you're finally talking about things, I look forward to reading much more, maybe more about the good times before the little brat came into your life :). I will see you on November 4th for sure. Maybe before that too, I might take a ride up with some of the family. I love you so much Bobby!! Keep writing, you're amazing!! Stay strong!!

You're loving sister...
Cristen

Hi Bob,
I just read your "fireworks" post. Another great one! Bad memories leave scars that do not go away. You have to dig down deep to remember the good ones. I do remember them. To this day I still talk about the great times we had back then in that house. Those are some of the best memories I have as well. I remember spending weeks at a time over there with you guys. I remember sprinting after the ice cream truck and swimming in the pool every day. You taught me to swim in that very pool (even though I am two years your elder). Or the mad dash to clean the house we trashed before your parents got home. I felt as though I was part of that community myself. That house was my home away from home. I often wonder how things would be Uncle Bob and my mom were still around today. You can't go back in time, but you can hold on to those fond memeories. Hang in there.
By the way, I am going to visit on Weds. Sept. 7th. Look forward to seeing you.
