Father and son enjoy the ride
DETROIT -- It's all gone. The bulk of his oldest son's college career, his second son's senior year in high school, a portion of elementary and middle school for his third boy, the first three years of his youngest son's life. He missed birthdays and basketball games, holidays and family dinners.
Nothing will bring them back. Photographs and newspaper clippings offer a retelling and a keepsake championship ring is a nice trinket, but it's not the same. He wasn't there.
