I checked out this video of us of the final episode of “Full Home,” the ultimate bows. All of us gathered round, and Bob finally walked over and he hugged me, kissed me. However I don’t understand how shut I used to be to him on the finish there. I didn’t assume I wanted a Bob in my life. I had my dad and mom. I had my religion. I had no matter.
However then my dad dies, and this man steps up like no person in my life as a result of all people else was busted up. My sisters, my mother. However Bob wasn’t, and he simply stepped in and took care of me, even to the purpose of “Can I host your dad’s funeral?” Two hours of soiled jokes that I assume my dad would’ve favored. However he gave individuals what they wanted at that second. Everyone wanted amusing, and he did it.
I believe that one actually cemented our friendship. After which it simply obtained nearer and nearer from there, to the purpose of we simply had been there by all crucial moments. Now I’ve to get by them with out him, ?
His divorce was first, and I believe that’s when possibly he would say I used to be round for him. I used to be his Cyrano by a number of stuff. I bear in mind being on a textual content on a primary date with him, telling him what to say, what to do. After which when he broke up with that lady, he was virtually residing on my sofa. I imply, we had been as shut as anybody may very well be. However all people mentioned that about him.
Bob was an amazing listener, however typically you needed to inform him to hear. Right here’s the reality, too: There was some extent in our life and our friendship, about 10 or 11 years in the past, once we had been like a married couple. We had been each single and round one another loads, and I mentioned, “You’ve obtained to go to a therapist if we’re going to remain associates.” I had this nice man. Bob began going to him, and it actually helped. Bob could be speaking about himself, speaking about himself, and you then’d see one thing in his eyes go, “Oh. Now I’ve obtained to ask about John. ‘How are you?’”
However subsequent to my mother, he was my largest cheerleader, my largest fan. He would brag about me to individuals. After I introduced “Fuller Home” again and it was a hit, at first you would see he was like, “Why didn’t I consider that?” After which virtually each interview it was, “John did this. He’s the one who obtained us collectively. We owe it to him.”
