Bumble bee was his nickname for me, and hearing it for, for what I thought would be the last time, brought me in a river of tears. My little sister, who is two years old, she didn’t know what was going on she just thought dad was going to work. She is always sad when dad leaves but today I said “don’t worry Salie, daddy is going away for a little while but then he will be back”, or at least I hope so.
