So back in October of 2021 my dad was diagnosed with Small-cell carcinoma. And around that time, Cody Johnson released “Till you Can’t” which became somewhat of a family mantra, knowing the end would come at some point. Well, after a few months long battle he passed in February 2022. My oldest boy (6yo) had a rough time with it for a while. Well, fast forward to this year, he said he wanted to be in the Elementary school talent show and that he wanted to sing a song for his Papa. He was one of the only Kindergartners to participate. He can’t keep time to save his life but I am so proud of him. His Mama and Nana were a mess, but it was good.

Hell, I'm sure I'd be a mess too if I click on it. I'm a very proud "Grampy", so I'll take your word for it. Y'all are obviously raising that boy right. Well done. up

Im sure that was very special for yall but I couldnt understand a single word. Not him, just bad acoustics. Congratulations on a fine boy.

I'm welling up just as a dad; I hope my kids' kids remember me in such a loving way.

Kudos and prayers for comfort and peace for your family.
