Everyday is Father’s Day, no?

Mother and Son on Disney Dream Cruise Ship
Your Grandson has grown about a foot in the past two years


Hey Dad, assuming there’s a cool version of FB where you are.

Sorry we didn’t get to spend more time together.

Guess I thought you’d live forever.

Never in a million years saw Alzheimer’s (the early onset, rapid-progression kind) coming.

Looking back, guess I used career ambition to hide the pain and denial.

My bad.

I know you forgive me and I’m at peace with that.

And hey, your Grandson (the one you never got to meet, although the trip was just two months away), he’s taller than me now – yeah, he’s only 12.

And one more thing. Thought it was amazing that you were 50 before you bought your first car brand new.

At 54, I’m still waiting. Guess I’m an over achiever like that.

I’ll see you when I see you.

PS. Happy Father’s Day Dad.
