March 2, 2010 –
I picked up the photo of Robert from the chapel at the Fairview Red Wing Hospital. I went to the chapel to pray for my friend who died over the weekend, who returned from Iraq a couple of months ago from his 2d tour. Your son’s photo was laying by the prayer book, and decided I wanted to carry him with me for a while. I can tell by looking at him that he was a very kind, loveable young man with a sense of humor. I strongly believe in the spiritual realm and that those who have left before us are still with us, guiding us and loving us. I am hoping you feel his presence often. I plan to carry your son’s picture around with me until I find what seems like a most appropriate place where he may touch someone else’s life. For now, he has deeply touched mine.
