Melissa I was thinking about your wedding day in Glenwood Springs, the wedding was before the Justice of the Peace, it was a June day in the Garfield County Courthouse. The ceremony was in the late afternoon and after the ceremony was over the judge allowed some pictures of you at his bench where you took some pictures with the gavel and generally had a great time.
We always had great times in Glenwood and in the Hot Springs Pool. I remember you and Zak in the kiddie pool and eventually into the larger pools, it was good time with family. The last time we were in Glenwood together was in 2019 for Grandma’s Birthday and over that weekend it was good to hear the memories and get to share them with Jimmy and Dawn.
I also remember when Papa’s mom Granny was living with us and she would be walking around the living room and you and Zak age 2 and 3 would be following her and she said in her Scottish accent, she would say Ye wee little devils when she found you following her.
I will miss the hats and smiles and laughter. I remember the struggles and I remember the last time we were together, and you gave me a hug and kiss and told me I love you Uncle Bob. I love you too Melissa.

I always remember Grandma and Papa waking me up the morning you were born and how loud the birds were singing. When your Mom was teaching me how to drive you told your Mom “He drives slow”. I remember helping you Mom make the acrobat costumes for Halloween. I was the idea man and she was the seamstress. When you broke your arm we’d still find you doing handstands with your cast on. I will never forget taking you to the Phoenix Airport and seeing Air Force One. We shared a lot of great family times filled with laughter. It will be weird the next time we are at Glenwood and your not there. I’m glad we hiked to Hanging Lake in 2017. I wish you had been able to find the peace you were searching for but I take comfort that you are no longer in pain. I love you Issa Rah Rah and am going to miss you dearly.
