A Wedding and a Dash

Tomorrow morning, my son, Kerry Joseph, is getting married to the love of his life, Katelyn. We love them both so much and wish them well!!! For those who have never met Kerry, I will tell a brief story that says much about him. The other day, he told me that he wants to get a tattoo of a dash (one of these: – ) . When I asked him why, he said that his tombstone will likely read, 1990 – xxxx (date unknown), and the ONLY important part about this is the dash. The dash is important because it represents everything that happens in between. The here and now. The life to live. And tomorrow morning, he and Katie will embrace that life. They will share their strong love with all of us in one of the most beautiful places on Planet Earth. I feel privileged to be able to witness it. Maybe I want to get a dash too …
