I just wanted to share a special story about Rob. He was the bus driver for my son with Autism many years back. He always looked out for my son, encouraged him to do well, and rewarded him at the end of the week if he did well.
Then one Sunday in late winter early spring, my son built a snowman with the family, he was so excited to show Rob on Monday, he was so proud of that snowman. Monday morning came and he shared his snowman with Rob, but while he was at school that day, the temperature shot up enough to melt most of the snowman. When Rob dropped off my son from school, it was barely a mound of snow and my son had a meltdown. Well the next morning when Rob came to pick Alex up from school, he had a musical plush snowman that he told Alex would never melt. What it did melt was my heart. We still have that snowman, and share the story every Christmas season when we get it out with the rest of the decorations.
That act of kindness that Rob did will forever be in my heart. He was so kind and a good buddy to my son, and I will never forget him for this.
Rest easy Rob, it was a pleasure to also be your nurse in 2016, and I hope I made you feel as special as you made my son feel.
