My youngest son graduated in July with a carpentry degree. I am so proud of him. He is the first one in my family to graduate from uni. His dad,Allan, was a handyman too. He passed away last year. When my son was younger he would follow him around with his own tool belt, trying to help him do things like fix the deck. When his father passed away I thought that he might want to quit his studies. But he didn’t. I know his dad would have been so proud of him and I know that he did this for him. Sitting there in the auditorium, watching him graduate, I choked up. My sister was cheering and yelling, and we looked at each other. I told her “I know Allan is watching”.
