What To Offer

To my son Tommy,

A tear shed in a funeral home is a strange mixture of sadness and joy.  It is an inexplicable mixture of grief and love.  There are no words that can reconcile these two extremes felt by a friend who has lost a loved one.  All you can offer is your presence, a hug, and a shared tear.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
