Hardest Father’s Day Ever (Drive Day 1 minus 14 years, 13 days)

In 2003, three generations spend Father’s Day measuring carpet, building under-camper lawn chair storage compartments, waterproofing the riveted seams of the all-aluminum Avion and teasing Alex about his new girlfriend back at college.
Fourteen years later, one’s missing. And life will never be the same.
