My dad. Larger than life. He lived a good one. Never a dull moment with him around. Crazy old man! I love him so much. It crazy to imagine him gone. Once someone was listing to me tell a story, looking at me and studying my then he said “you’re Cowboy Bobs daughter?!?!?!” I said yes, and asked how he knew. He said “your eyes and the way you’re telling that story!” I considered it all a compliment. I will miss him dearly. He was a piece of work for sure. ❤️😢 the random phone calls to check in. The “where ya at??” When you’re 2 minutes late. Just all of it.
