"Thank you for serving our country! I remember the first time I ever told you this, you were alive and well when I did. I just wish that you were still here with me, you passed too soon in our friendship and I never saw it coming. I'm one of the few who still keeps your memory alive, or at least try to. Not one day goes by where you don't cross my mind, I hope you know. Please don't ever stop sending me signs from above and keep guiding me through my life. I know you're still by my side everywhere I go and I'm grateful. Until we meet again, my friend."

"I know I'm a few days late...but Happy Birthday to you, you got your wish, a thunderstorm happened that day. I miss our conversations so very much. I would give anything to have you back here with me. I know it was your time to go, despite if I didn't want it to be. Little by little I get stronger, however it's still difficult on other days to keep myself together. Every now and then, I tend to still cry at night, silently to myself because I long to see your face, hug you, and hear your voice again. Please keep watching over me and guiding me throughout my life, which will always be longing for you, until we meet and miss you Bob."

"In my belief, my best friend passed away one year ago today or tomorrow since this was the very last day anyone saw him out in public until we heard the news of his death on the 15th of January.

One year ago today, I saw a good friend of mine one last time. Although, in my mind, we would see each other the next day. Maybe we would’ve possibly talked on the phone later on in the night. We even had plans for future events for the New Year of 2015. However, God had other plans for him, plans that even I nor anyone couldn't foresee.

In my belief, on the night of January 12th, 2015 or in the early hours of January 13th, 2015, God offered to take my friend’s hand invited him back “home” for He did not want to see my friend suffer anymore. This place was somewhere my friend was always awaiting to be since his father was there. Somebody he cherished and missed very much for the past few years. I’m sure he thought of all his loved ones still on earth and asked God, “Will they be alright without me here?” God probably reassured him that we would all be fine without him and that he could always be there to guide, care, and protect all of us. Without hesitation, I know my friend instantly grabbed God’s hand, for my friend cared for all of those who cared for him. Although, we didn’t want to believe it was his time to go, it truly was.

This good friend of mine was Bob or “Bobby” Hutchison. Despite if our friendship was short lived, it was the kind of friendship to last forever. It’s been a crazy year without him, full of both happy yet sad tears. Not one day goes by where I don’t think of him. However, ever since he passed I have not felt alone one bit. Ever since the first “sign” he sent me (a red tail hawk), he has sent me many other “signs” to show me that he will always be there to protect me. Just like he promised me when he was alive. Almost on a daily basis, I feel his presence, and it’s the most comforting feeling whenever I’m missing him most. He was such a great, funny, and caring guy.

Miss you and love you Bob, until we meet again, my dear friend.

-Jana :) <3"

"A year ago, you celebrated your last Thanksgiving with my family and I, just know that I was thinking about you today...I saw your blue jay sign right as I opened my curtains this morning...I felt your presence off and on throughout the day, I saw the video that your mother posted of your nieces performing cartwheel tricks, and seeing your American Flag in the same shot...just a reminder that "Uncle Bob" is still very much with them at that moment...thank you for still showing signs of your everlasting protection and love...Happy Thanksgiving Bob! I miss you so very much, not a day goes by where I don't think of you my dear friend."

"Today, I think of your smile, your kind eyes, your unique laugh, and all the times we shared together. Thank you so very much for your service in the Navy for 5 years, I know how proud you were of having served our country. Like you used to always say "I take good care of my people." and you sure did, I miss you Bob, all of your loved ones do. There is never one day that goes by where I don't think about you. Thank you for continuing to show your "signs" of everlasting friendship/love to let me know you are still very much with me, you have no idea how much I appreciate that! Until we meet again, my dear "sidekick"...

Your friend,

Words cannot describe how much you meant to me as a friend and as a person in general, I miss you so very much and I’ll never forget all the memories we’ve made together. Photos of you and I are mainly all I have left when it comes to proof of our friendship other than our stories. Although time may go on and you may not be here on earth anymore, I know in spirit you are always with me by my side to guide me in my life and to keep me safe from harm. Just like you’d promise me you would. I can’t wait to see you again someday, where we can laugh and have many more of our random conversations together. You will always be my “P.I.T.A”, “Twitch” and “Soul Companion”.
Your “Brat”, “Flipper”, and “Best Friend”,
