The quiet man

If you are wondering what this has to do with the quiet man. Absolutely nothing. Just a peek at next weeks post.  If you have been following me you know I lost my brother last winter and we will have his funeral Friday. He was known by some as the quiet man. He was loved by many but he would listen and smile and say few words. Bob joined the Navy when he was old enough and served 4 years . He then joined the Naval reserves til his retirement. He worked at Frink's snow plow factory in his home town until it closed. He was always our hero but he never knew that he would become one. He was walking near the river when some one had fallen through the ice. He rushed over the dangerous ice and pulled the boy to safety. He was awarded by the fire dept for saving a life . To Bob it was the right thing to do. A few years ago he fell on the new fire boat and hit his head. A year later he had an Alzheimer condition. The family will celebrate his life he lived it bravely. He will join his mom dad and siblings.
Join  with me in 2 weeks and see what I am up too.
