The Good Son

leave a comment »

This has been a tough year for this author. But soon I’ll be on the road again. When I want to remember my good son, I often will review text messages that he sent me.  It seems he realized early on that our struggle together held us in a bond, when everybody including family was leaving us in the dust.

This is a message that was texted from my son Sean on 11/2/10

I love you Dad. I’m thankful for the ability to call you up and share things that are going on or spend time with you when I visit. Thank you for being there for me and thank you for being my Dad.”   Sean Thomas Dickson

Two months later my son passed away of Leukemia unexpectedly.
