Judson's Legacy

Lightning McQueen Watch

Dear Jud,

I got a watch a few weeks ago-in honor of you.  I think you would like it as much as I do.  It’s like the watch you got shortly after you got sick; it has Lightning McQueen on it.

I would never have thought to purchase a watch with a cartoon character before.  But since you left, I’m holding on to anything that will help me remember you-like toys, things in our home, places we spent time together, and pictures of you.

The watch holds a very special place, though.  Because you loved Lightning McQueen.  Because it has your name on it.  Because it has my name on it-the name I also gave to you because you’re my first and only son, and I’m your dad.

Oh, my son.  I miss you so much.  I love you so much.  I don’t know how to live without you.  My heart is broken!

With all of my love,
