YESTERDAY, on his 43rd birthday, Sheldon Gakowski gave his three sons a watch - a reminder that time is precious. Included was this note:
For my sons on my 43rd Birthday.
I want to talk about Time.
They say that men are given the gift of time.
In my case the time I've had with my boys is short. I hope we have treasured it. Be thankful everyday that you have more time to appreciate and love the things that matter to you.
For me - that has been you boys.
Time has been precious since I became your dad.
Time is one thing that you can never get back.
Once it's gone, it becomes our memories - make sure that you build great memories with your time.
When you boys grow up, make the most of your time.
Love your Dad.
