Can't say "My Three Sons" anymore.

by JAD on December 9, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

When the boys were small I always referred to them as my three sons and they were constant reminders of the T.V. show My Three Sons, which I loved, starring Fred MacMurray. Since my oldest son has passed away I refrain from saying those words; now it's two sons and it doesn't sound complete; but what I can do is continue saying three, if only to myself.
