From the time we started dealing with the paperwork, we were determined to have "Lovebug" as my boy's occupation on his death certificate.
According to bureaucracy, a "normal" response would be "Unemployed" or "Disabled". Totally inaccurate and unacceptable.
I fought the bureaucracy and won.
Happy birthday Colin!
This was my eulogy for Colin:
Colin is the greatest gift God could have ever given me in this mortal life. Early in his childhood when we discovered he was a person with special needs I went through a short period of typical disappointment, selfishly regretting the fact that I wouldn’t be able to play catch, go camping, teach all my obscure knowledge and values, the things that most dads get to do. Thankfully that disappointment didn’t last long and gave way to a life of new ways
