Andy's Balloons

He had to have the balloons. There was no way she would let him down. It seemed like everything fell apart when Jake died. Now even the car had drawn its last shuddering breath. 

Think about that later. Andy's balloons are all that matter. One foot in front of the other, only a mile to go. You have a son to think about. 

How did someone recover from the shock of death? How did someone keep going when love is stolen away?

Can't dwell on that now. 

Do the next thing. 

Keep breathing. 

Celebrate Andy's five years. 

Deliver the balloons.
