But, the reason that I love this picture is the reason behind the smile. That was one of his happiest days. We were on Mackinac Island riding our bikes. He was so happy because at that moment, he had everything in his life right before him:
- He loved riding his bike.
- He loved the outdoors.
- He loved spending time with his son.
- He bought me my bike so that I could go riding with him, something that he had been bugging me to do.
- He loved being around family.
- He loved spending time up north, it was his favorite place in the world.
- He loved being with me.
