Today I had the great honor of reading a #eulogy at the final resting place of a brother #ironworker, fellow #Marine, & my friend, Bob Shuff. Here is an excerpt of that eulogy: "Bob experienced something in his life few of us have the opportunity to experience: to mentor inexperienced youngsters & watch them progress into seasoned tradesmen. Nelson Mandela once wrote, “What counts is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” Bob's influence upon the world has been felt by many, & will continue for generations to come.... what greater testament can any of us ask for? So, Bob, take off your hard hat, kick off your boots, & crack open a cold beer -- you've more than earned it. #SemperFidelis. "
