I was their tour guide as we traveled Louisville. We visited the zoo, the Falls of the Ohio, Joe Ley Antiques and walked across the Big Four Bridge. I was able to get to know his new wife better after getting to spend a lot of quality time with them while they visited Indiana. I look forward to their next visit or an opportunity to head out west and spend some quality time with my oldest child and my new daughter-in-law.
When I was married last May, all of my children were part of the ceremony. My daughter was a bridesmaid and my three sons were groomsmen, with my oldest serving as my best man.
Later last fall, I was able to return the favor by standing up for my son during their ceremony. My oldest summed it up in a little something he wrote for me for a gift that my wife gave me for an anniversary present.
It read, “It was an honor to have him serve as my best man … I think his love and acceptance of me have earned him that title.”
