Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Gloomy Denver Morning

Today was a morning like most. I got up early and was working away. I had to watch Abbie for a couple hours while Julie took her Mom to the airport - but other than that, it was pretty normal. Then it all changed.

At about 10:20 this morning (under an hour ago), Julie rushed into my office to tell me that Bob the Builder had a stroke next door. I ran over there to see if I could help - and there he was - sitting in his Bobcat, unconscious. One of his workers was giving him CPR, but he apparently hadn't been breathing for a few minutes. The ambulance showed up a few minutes after and hauled him away about 10 minutes later. He still wasn't breathing and had no pulse. I hope he's OK.

Update: Bob passed away this morning at Porter Hospital. He will be missed.

Usually if someone isn't breathing and has no pulse it means they are dead. My condolences.

I'm very sorry to hear this. From what you've posted in the past Bob was a good guy and a good Builder. I imagine his shoes will be hard to fill, in several ways.

My condolence sir- I applaud your perspective on what is important. Good luck and God bless.
