This father’s day seems especially difficult. I lost my father a little over a year-and-a-half ago and while we didn’t see eye-to-eye all the time I loved him and miss him dearly. But what is more difficult this year is that we just learned that a father of one of my son’s teammates suddenly passed away in his early 40’s. He left behind a teenage son heading off to college and a daughter. I honestly can’t image losing a parent so young in life and my heart goes out to these two kids.
So, I have been thinking about Father’s Day even more and what it means for me. If your father is still alive cherish him and learn more about his legacy. If he is no longer with you, you can still learn about his life and pass on his legacy to your children or others.
