Remembering Rob

Rob's country
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of Rob Holdstock.

It’s still hard to believe that’s he’s no longer with us.

The above picture, which I’ve called ‘Elysium’, was taken a few days ago in Coole Park in Galway. As soon as I saw it I though of Rob.

I miss him.

The good news is that £3,761 was raised for the ‘Rob Holdstock Memorial Fund‘, and an acre of woodland in Victory Wood will be dedicated to the memory of Rob’s life and writing.

Early in the new year a bench and plaque will be placed on the site, and people will be able to go there and visit.

I hope to go there one day, sit and remember Rob’s hearty laugh and great soul.
