Shortly after Rehtaeh was born I flew her home to Ottawa for a family visit. She had already met her grandma and grandpa so it was nice for the rest of my family to see my beautiful little girl.

I’m not sure if it was that visit or one after, but I do remember having a talk with dad about fatherhood shortly after Rehtaeh was born. He asked if I knew what the most important thing a man can give hisĀ children was?

It was an easy question – the most important thing a man can give his children is his time. You never know when it will run out so make the most of it while you can.

Take care of Rae dad. This is for you –
