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,
