Update: Read Bob’s essay HERE. It is excellent!
I received the most awesome comment this morning from Valerie MacEwan
of The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature. Our dear friend,
Bob Church, will be published there on June 5th! Here is the message:
Found an essay of Bob’s in the submit.mule mailbox this morning. It was sent March 17. He mentioned your blog in his “howdy there” message to me so I tracked you down and did not expect to find such a sad message.
We’ll publish The Ladle on the Mule on June 5th. Not because it was Bob’s and he’s gone – No – we publish it because it’s a great essay and he was a compelling writer, fun to read and wonderful to contemplate.
Good bye Bob.
and the Staff of the Dead Mule School of Southern Literature
What exciting news! Please be sure to go over and read Bob’s work on
Friday, June 5. I’m so excited! I couldn’t wait until Friday to tell
everyone. It is a well deserved honor for Bob. I love his writing, and I love
his sweet, gentle spirit, his sense of humor, and his wisdom.
The link for The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature is HERE. It is an
awesome journal full of fine writing, and I am thrilled to see Bob in there.
Many of us have been deeply saddened by Bob’s passing, and now this is
something to celebrate.
Be sure to keep checking Bob’s blog, too. His family found a poem he
wrote, and it was posted there recently. I am so thankful to his family for
sharing him with us. The link for Bob’s site is HERE.
Nan Jacobs sent me a link for an interview of Bob at Unite-to-Write. You
can read the interview HERE. I had never read it, and I was so happy to
receive the link. As always, Bob makes me laugh. Thanks, Nan!
Bob Church will live forever in our hearts…and in his beautiful words. I don’t
think he would mind if I say Yeeeeeee-ha! ..Way to go, Bob!
