Wow, I am not reacting well to Bob's death. I just cannot figure out why my reaction is so strong. I have lost many people in my life who were very close to me on a daily basis. Six years ago my mother died at the age of 59. Four years ago my goddaughter died at the age of one. This past December, my aunt, who was like a second mother to me, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 50. Being depressed over those deaths made sense to me. I am just struggling to figure out how it is that the death of a person I knew only through my Ipod could be so depressing to me. I can only attribute it to Bob himself. There must have been something intangibly special about him. Something that cannot be understood intellectually, but felt in your heart. I feel guilty being so sad when his family and the pod crew are experiencing such a true loss. Just had to post this..hope it wasn't too strange.
