To all the little boys who won't see their dad at their ballgame
or have him around to teach them about changing oil or starting a lawnmower
...or about life.
To all the little girls who won't hear their daddy telling them they are beautiful
and who won't have him there to put some appropriate fear into the hearts of suitors.
To the wives trying to sleep in an empty bed.
To the dad's who said goodbye but never got to say hello again.
To the moms who lost their little boy and for whom, he will forever be just that.
None of us can comprehend what today means to you.
"Thank You" is meek and meager...but it's all we have, and it's from our hearts.
