River,

I hope you are bursting with pride at your achievements in high school. The music, the productions, the academic excellence - all this is far more important than being a star football player able to run past other guys without being knocked over. I feel sorry for your Dad - he has missed a lot. Not just helping you to learn and grow, but also learning to take on his most important task - being a good father.

Much love,
Larry
