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.
