My father had a heart attack and passed away christmas day 3 yrs ago. It makes Christmas really tough.
For sure the best gift I ever got was a saxophone given to me by my mom and dad for xmas when I was about 16. I still have it, still play it, and every time i do I remember how much my dad sacrificed to buy it for me.
At the time my parents weren't very well off and the instrument cost 1500.00 dollars. I realize now that I'm older how much my parents put out and sacrificed to buy me that horn.
I miss my dad tonight and it's really tough but i think I will play some of my dads favorite tunes on the sax he bought me. That always makes me feel better.
