Last year I was on the NCL Spirit on Father's day. I tried to get my Dad to come with us but he said he was too old. I emailed him every day about the sea conditions and the weather and each day looked forward to his sarcastic, spirited response.
If I had know it would be his last Father's day, I would have tried much harder to get him to come along.
Missing Dad, but there's not much question that the salt-water that runs through my veins came from him.
