I believe Bob tells the truth. When I first met him, he told me tales of life in New Hampshire; how he had an uncle who murdered his aunt in an alcoholic blackout; how a sizeable inheritance was stolen from him; and how those who are supposed to love him most first abused him and then left him alone to fend for himself. Yeah, right, Iâ€™d say to myself. This man wants some attention and is putting together some really good stories to get it. A trip to New Hampshire with Bob in January 2006, however, revealed the truth: every story that Bob had shared with me was real. And he is an incredible example of so many things I admire. A survivor. A man of strong faith. Tolerant. Kind. Forgiving. Happy. Honest.Â And content with the life heâ€™s been given.
