As promised in my blog post, “Just Let Me Cry,” I have done my best to chronicle for you the over a year long, behind-the-scenes story about a very dear man in my life, Robert (from my perspective, of course). However, a short and simple blog post that will eventually get buried under others would be an incredible injustice to the subject of the story, as well as its Author. So I have created a permanent blog page called “Robert’s Story” – and it is fitting that I would publish it today on what would have been his 45th birthday (had he still been alive, I would have likely been in Belgium with him). This will not be something for my “casual readers” who just like hearing about the antics of my life in Ecuador. This is the story of one precious soul and just how much he mattered to me and to God. Read it only when you have plenty of time, (it will take you 1.5 to 2 hours) and I suggest keeping a box of Kleenex nearby.
Below are a few pictures of some of my favorite memories with him. And so now, regarding my first year and a half in Ecuador, you can finally know (as Paul Harvey would say) “the rest of the story…” – Robert’s Story
