#SOL16: My Brother's Promise

Jack standing beside Rob (2016)

My older brother, Jack, tells me that 2 months ago Rob talked to him while he was visiting him at the hospital. He asked him to take care of Devon and me after he was gone.

You'll take care of them? I figure you can all live together.

I was surprised to learn of the conversation. But now, I realize how very much this conversation represents these two men. They both love deeply. Later, Jack is beside Rob and I hear the end of a conversation he is having with him.

We'll take care of Mary and Dev. You don't have to worry about that. You can go. Let go, Let God, brother. Jack says this as he clasps Rob's left hand between his, standing alongside the hospital bed a few days before Rob died.
