On A Sad Note

On a Wednesday night after coming home for Galaxy we received sad news. Our family friend and National Geographic photographer, Bobby Model, had passed away.

Two years ago June Bobby was in the passenger seat of a small truck in South Africa and a large piece of cement was thrown through the window and crushed his head leaving him fighting for his life. With the help of amazing medical care and his caring family Bobby survived several months in a coma, multiple surgeries, transporting from South Africa to New York to Denver and eventually home to Cody. He did come out of the coma eventually and began rehab to talk and become more mobile again. He was doing pretty well considering.

Unexpectedly Bobby took a turn for the worst and passed away. From what I understand he suffered a hemorrhage in his brain and it led to his brain shutting down the rest of his body.

We were able to join other close friends and family on the other ranch to celebrate Bobby's life and share in the closure of a service. I have great respect for Bobby's family. They graciously walked through this last 2 plus years. Our hearts and thoughts are with them.
