So…thank God, the daddy is no longer 2268 miles away, but he still calls his 10 year old daughter on the phone several times a week.

Daughter: “Daddy, a friend of mine’s Dad died.”

Daddy: “Oh no!”

Daughter: “Yeah, I think he had cancer or something. So he wasn’t in school today because he’s sad.”

Daddy: “Wow. When he comes back he’s going to need a lot of hugs, huh?”

Daughter: “Yeah.”

Daddy: “It’s hard to know what to say to somebody after something like that happens. You just have to be sweet and be their friend.”

Daughter: “And offer them a Pringle.”

The daddy smiled and, although he didn’t think it was possible, fell in love a little bit more.
