My sister is on her way.
She was the first person I called after I heard the news about Robert and she immediately cancelled her plans for the week and jumped in her car to drive to Denver. I feel like I'm holding my breath waiting for her to get here.
Keith and his family are making the funeral arrangements this afternoon and I've been tasked with making a slideshow of pictures and writing the obituary. I don't know who has the tougher job.
So many memories have come rushing back to me. Robert has been such a huge part of my life from the day I met him. We became immediate friends! He helped pick out the ugly furniture for our house, he helped plan my wedding, he planned and hosted my baby shower and brought Alex a stuffed animal the day he was born. He took care of Alex and Mallory for the first time so that Keith and I could go to Vegas for a weekend, he was there for Alex's first day of Kindergarten, he photographed Field Day at school and he was there for the kids' singing performance at Barnes and Noble.
How do we go on without him?
He was supposed to be my back up. He called himself my brother husband and said that if Keith died he'd marry me and help raise my kids. I feel like I've lost my best friend.
We had so much fun together and so much of it is here on this blog. Many of you have messaged me with so many kind words and thoughts for my family and you felt like you knew Robert because of what I shared with you.
I'm so glad that I'll always have these memories of my Adventures with Robert here to enjoy.
