I am the son of Bob Sr. and wanted to say thanks to all of you that gave us your blessings.
It’s scary to read how many people are bitter they did not win, or that my father was not excited. As of today, he is still in shock, to say the least! Trust me, my father will have his break down period now that the news cameras are gone, papers are signed, phone calls are slowing down and so on.
It’s just so unreal, as he says right now. He’s been giving phone interviews, press conferences, and has not had the time to just sit and think of what he has won. My father is a very smart man, and trust me, he will be able to handle all the winnings. I know we all think we deserve it but trust me, out of any man I know, my father is great and really deserves this.
He has gone thru a lot of hard times losing his son in a car accident, his wife to cancer, then his mother-in-law and brother-in-law. My father knows pain, as he knows being happy.
Putting all this aside, he could run circles around most of us. My father has worked hard his whole life in giving his family what they needed growing up. My father has also given back to all his communities he has lived in. And trust me, if the man above is watching, he picked my father for a reason.
For those that wished us well in the comments, thank you so much. For those that had mean things to say, shame on you!
