I posted this on Facebook and thought it would be somewhat appropriate to put here:
"Insert drugs and I could have written this. I am unbelievably thankful
for Mike, his dad, and his grandfather and bittersweet for the life my
dad could have chosen to have. He missed Autumn by just over a year."
And I really am. I'm so very thankful for the dads in my life. It makes Father's Day a little less weird.
