I loved the little memorial sticker in his window that said, "Please drive safe... I miss my dad." Made me wonder if Dad died in a car accident or if he's locked up for reckless endangerment of the general public.
Speaking of memorial window stickers... WTH? When they started popping up after 9/11, I wondered what future anthropologists and sociologists will make of us. It's been a few years and become more common, but I still don't know what to make of them.
If you have one, I'm not saying you should take it down. I'm just saying I don't get it. How do you choose who has earned a sticker on your rear window? For most people it seems to be simply based on who died after these stickers became a fad, but I've seen a few that are clearly honoring generations past. Where is the line? I'm just waiting for the sticker "marker" like I've seen at grave sites.

What do you say to Mary? "No pressure Mom, I just want to make sure I still have room when your time comes. And don't worry, I've had all of the numbers made so your end date will match everything else."
