I wish Bob was sitting with me here now so I could tell him what he means to me - what he has meant to all of us. The reality of our times is that the loud, boisterous ones get our attention. But there are those among us who tread softly - the kind, gentle, loving, giving ones like Bob that so often go unnoticed. They inspire us to be more, to give more, and to do it with humility. They embody the phrase "the meek shall inherit the Earth".
Sadly, we don't always share with our loved ones what they mean to us. We assume they know. So if I didn't say it in so many words, Bob - Thank you for being you. Thank you for showing us the way.
-William L. Smith
