I've been thinking about him a lot lately. He was truly never far from my thoughts; guess that comes when his son is my son. And every time my eyes water up, and every time they did for 7 years, he would sing this song to me.
Seems appropriate today. Dust in the eye so to speak when the reality of it all sets in:
I can hear him saying to me some weeks ago, "Don't go getting all weepy eyed on me."
Okay, Don, I won't... :)
