A getaway with Shannon…

posted in: Letters to Rob 0

I have known you since the beginning. You were the adorable blonde working at the front desk of the foundation. Anytime I needed anything, you were always there to help me. Over time, I got to know you, and I fell in love with your beautiful soul. And, even though you never got the chance to meet Rob, it is as if you’ve always known him. Your love for me and my grief has been unconditional since the day that I met you.

And… although your journey has been filled with difficulties, you have found the strength to finally choose yourself. I am so incredibly proud of you!

Thank you for being a part of Rising Above Addiction from the beginning and helping me to be able to help others.

I am so excited that you are here! The perfect morning!

Shannon rode the bike, and Leah and I ran eight miles, ending in Carlsbad.

Followed up by Starbucks and a walk on the beach.

Rob, thank you for giving me all of these blessings and for the gift of being present and taking in the day.

For You, Because of You and In Memory of You…
