I left this for the last minute again and since at the last minute my friend, Bob, passed away, I’ve made this post about him.
Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes, because for those who love with their heart and soul, there is no separation. – Rumi
I had only known Bob for a handful of years, but it feels like a life time. He was such a kind and gentle man. He would often tell me how he thought of me as family and I very much felt the same.
I would go over to their place for the day to visit and share a meal and he would always tell the most interesting stories about growing up in rural Saskatchewan or his time working as a Social Worker. He had a quick wit and was always ready with an amazing pun.
He was an avid photographer and would love to take walks along country roads, snapping some amazing shots of the country side.
Though he is no longer with us on this Earth, his love, compassion, words of wisdom, and kindness will be with me forever. I am glad of the time I was fortunate to have spent with him.
Bob, I hope you’re at peace, maybe sharing your wonderful sense of humour with God.
See you on the other side of the barely field. ❤
