Thank You Carter

Father & Son: 1999
Father & Son: 1999

Do you have daily rituals? Is watching the sun set one of them?

It used to be for me. A ritual, I mean.

Please don’t misunderstand, I still watch every sunset, but it no longer has the ritual of sitting outside, cold beer in hand, neighbors sitting next to me, and sometimes, like in this photo, Lab on lap.

Exactly one month ago, on Valentine’s Day morning, our beloved Canine Son, Carter, took his final breath, and that night, we watched a beautiful Florida sunset – with one less spectator.

Bet you miss special loved ones too.
