My friend Rob Meadows grew up on the move, the third of four boys in his family. During his childhood they lived in a variety of states and even as far as New Zealand, and through it all, his father was always there for him. As Rob grew and pursued his education as far as a PhD, he knew his father was proud. Which made it all the harder when Rob faced leukemia and his father was no longer there for him.
