My kitchen and living room are full of Robert's things. Keith brought another load home last night and now I'll have little touches of Robert everywhere. His beautiful cat has adopted me...funny how that works and I'm now his person. I think he sees the resemblance to Rob in Keith and stares him down hoping to hear his voice.
I have another story for you. This one makes my heart happy. One of Robert's closest friends is Ron. Ron is 69 years old and has spent his whole life on the stage! In face, he choreographed the last play that Robert and I saw together last November. Two days before he died Rob asked Ron to make him a new bracelet with red in it. Ron finished the bracelet 15 minutes before he got the call about Robert.
On Sunday, when we were packing up Rob's house....Ron came up to Keith and put the bracelet on him and told him that it was meant for Robert. Keith, who is not a friendship bracelet kind of guy...is wearing it proudly!
Keith is back to work today and we're trying to return to our normal lives. I still can't believe Robert is gone and feel like he could call me at any moment and make me laugh. What I do know, is that his spirit lives on....and that makes me happy!
