“Terrance, this is Clark. I was calling to let Lexus know that dad doesn’t have much longer.”
“I do too,” Terrance agrees. “I’ll see what I can do.”
His thoughts are interrupted by Ethan. “Daddy…what’s wrong?”
Terrance wipes away a few tears. “Nothing son. I’m OK.”
“Sure, meet me upstairs,” he tells him.
That one word touches Terrance deeply. It’s a word that he didn’t get to say very often, because his father never lived with them.
