I had another one while listening to Gunnar play the tuba in the band and then while watching him sing a spiritual later in the same concert. He had the look of pure joy on his face and I realized how much I'm going to miss him next year. This was the last fall concert of his high school career. He will have many more lasts this year, each one bitter sweet for him and me. But, I have to keep in mind that they will only lead to more firsts for us both.
