Bob said, "I guess you won't need me any more."

He took me fishing or hunting most Saturdays. The last time I saw him was the day I introduced him to my mom's fiancé. I've never forgotten him.

Bob was my Big. A Big is a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters. You've probably heard of them.

He included me in his normal activities. It was special for me, but probably not too much trouble for him. He was going fishing anyway.

I qualified for the program because I didn't have a dad in my life. My dad died when I was little.

You can learn about mentoring at the BBBSA website: http://www.bbbs.org

God bless,
