Pablove


I've been reading Pablo's blog for about a year now and on Saturday I checked in after a few days maybe a week and saw the terrible news. Pablo passed away 6 years and 6 days into his life. I've been wanting to write about him for days but I couldn't find the right words. I didn't know Pablo, but I have met his father a few times so I wasn't sure I had the right to even write about him but then again couldn't quit thinking about him and his family. I can't quit wondering why a little boy is taken away. I can't quit thinking about how strong his family has seemed and I can't quit thinking about how giving they are. Ben is in LA this week for a show and to visit their record label, the label that Pablo's father Jeff started. He sent me this picture tonight from Pablo's memorial and it brought tears to my eyes, one because he is so damned cute and two because in 6 years he has toughed the lives of so many people. I can't summarize quite yet what I'm learning from this but I think it has something to do with the strength of friendship, family, and even the love of strangers. I encourage you to visit the Pablove Foundation site and make a donation to spread the love around a little more. If you have a blog or a site please post the link or send it to your friends via email.

FYI - Randy read this post and then went to the blog to read it and then was upset that it made him sad. I asked him what he was expecting. But I haven't had the courage to go there yet...
