I will not name names. But this was a Facebook post written by a dad I know who drove his oldest child--his son, who happens to be my grandson--to college a few days ago and managed to keep those lump-in-throat emotions in check--for a while:
And for those who are asking the obvious question, by some miracle I did not cry. (No one will believe that.)
At least not until I got home and found a letter from him on the kitchen table. Then it was full-on runny nose blubbering.
He will be so happy there and I will still miss him so much.
