The Story

On Friday, January 24, 2014, Bob Meek-LaVeck died unexpectedly and suddenly leaving two children, a husband, a family and a community mourning his passing and the hole his passing left to his survivors.

As the primary, stay-at-home parent, he was dedicated to his children and selflessly volunteered his time and efforts to the school and community at large.  Though only a resident of Lunenburg, MA for 2 1/2 years, Bob's reach was far and wide as he worked on what he thought was right to help this community he loved.

He was a devoted parent, spouse and son whose light shone as brightly as his eyes.  The light has gone out, but the warmth of his radiance will remain in all he knew.

It's hard to believe that three years ago on the 1st of June, we purchased this lovely, old home.  Bob and the kids flew out early while I took care of getting the house ready in Ventura, California to rent out.  I'm fairly certain it was three years ago today that they came to Lunenburg to get the new house ready for me.  So much has happened in these last three years; some major, some minor; some good, some bad.  

The best part has come in the form of all the friends Bob made here, friends that I have now inherited.  Then there was all the work Bob did for the PTO and the New Lunenburg Middle/High School Building Project and our amazing, once in a lifetime vacation to Europe last year.  The worst, as you know, took place 131 days ago when Bob left this world.  Since then, we've been picking ourselves up and dusting each other off, some days with more success than others.  

I just wanted to thank those of you that continue to support us and help keep us standing.

109 days later, and I'm told the Medical Examiner's office is "unpending" Bob's cause of death.  Part of me wants to know, another part says it doesn't matter.  I should learn by end of week.

We passed the 100 day mark quietly.  One of us remains watching the calendar, while the others go on with their days and occasional moments of grief hitting them.  Three guesses who's doing what, and the first two don't count.
