For my favorite Wookiee

Miss you, pal.In honor of my son Harry, who would've been 3 today, I offer you The Star Wars Holiday Special, which centers around Chewbacca, who is trying to get home to celebrate Life Day with his family.

I'm always conflicted about posting about Harry. Some might consider it morbid for me to keep bringing him up year after year, but I'm always thinking about him.

When people ask how many kids I have, I feel guilty if I say two, but I don't want to bring everyone down by telling the story over and over. But I still want people to know who he was, even if he was only here for a short time.

Feel free to make a donation in Harry's name to either here, here, or the charity of your choice.

As promised, here's the special. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Oh, if you can make it all the way through, color me impressed. I still haven't quite made it yet.

  1. It is hard to know what to say. We lost a nephew to cancer when he was 4, and that was almost 13 years ago. It is still that way for all of us. You just have to do what feels most natural for the situation.

    I honestly think of Harry a lot, he randomly pops up in my thoughts. He truly is with everyone in a much bigger sense, as painful as it is that he isn't here physically. I think it's awesome you feel that way, and celebrate his memory. It's awesome you post about your favorite Wookiee, and you should always do it. :)

    PS - No way can I make it through the vid.
