A sad story

Matthew sent me this tweet that relates a sad tale, telling me it would have people “crying in their beer.” Well, I have no beer, but my Diet Squirt became a little bit saltier when I read the tweet—especially the included letter from Bailey Sellers’s father. Do read it. (Go to the original tweet and click on the card at upper right.)

    A bit of a choker for Bailey knowing this is the final communication, but a wise cut off point. Great dad!

    A very sweet gesture on the father’s part, though I wish his letter didn’t have religious cliches like “until we meet again” and “in a better place.”
    I also wonder if a phrase like “stay true to yourself” is meaningless. The self changes with age and experience.

      People like those religious cliches and sentiments. I am an atheist myself and would never use them. But if people like them, as do this father and daughter, let them use them.

        Agreed. What’s important here is not the carping about religion and God.
