Admittedly, the accuracy of this may be up for debate, but hey, it's fun!  To find out who you were in your past life, simply type into Google, "died on [insert your birthday and year]"  So for example, I Googled "died on June 8th 1983."

 

Think of it kind of like the tag-team wrestling of afterlives.  Someone died on the day you were born, and then "tagged you in," so to speak.  Well, on a beautiful late-spring night on a Wednesday in June, Lawrence Aloysius Whipple tagged The Rob into the great wrestling ring of life.

 

Lawrence Aloysius Whipple seemed to be a noble man, one who tried to make a difference in people's lives and communities.  Born in New York, Whipple had a political career in New Jersey, not far from where I was born right outside of Philadelphia.  His career culminated with a seat as a federal judge in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey...  A position he was nominated to by President Linden B. Johnson!

 

If Lawrence Aloysius Whipple, or "The L.A.W. Man" as I affectionately refer to him as is reading this from the great big laptop in the sky, I hope he knows that his death, which allowed for the birth of ME, was not in vain, and I aspire to make him proud with every passing moment.
