The Sunday Edition
When my sister announced to my parents that not only was she gay but that she was moving in with her then girlfriend (now wife- still together after over 30 years!) my mother was devastated. It shattered all the dreams she had for my sister and she could not bring herself to visit them, barely speak to them, for nearly two years. While it was also difficult for my father to accept, he went over to their place whenever they needed help. Together, we convinced my mother that they were happy and brought about an eventual reconciliation. When you talked about a father letting go, that’s what came to my mind today.
My sweet boy…. What a beautiful, heartfelt tribute…. I love you so much and am awed by your insight, memories, and ability to make me cry!!! Stay safe over there! Nailed it!!!
A killer tribute to papas!!!
It was an incredibly brave thing for you to tell your clearly beloved Dad that you didn’t want to play baseball anymore. And an incredibly wonderful parent to support your decision. Well done to both of you.
