Here is my Facebook post of August 16, 2019 about 2 weeks after our son died.
Over the past 25 years we’ve had a family tradition, a beach trip to Gulf Shores, Alabama. Here is a treasured photo from June 2018, 14 months before our son died. Here are my three sons: Jordan Capes, Bryan Capes and Daniel Capes. Daniel Capes is to my left (Picture right). For obvious reasons we missed this year’s trip. Daniel’s last request was to go to the beach. So we checked him out of M. D. Anderson Hospital and took him to Galveston Island. Two friends, Brenda and Ray Whaley, gave us the use of their beach house on Pirate’s Beach. We spent a cherished week there. Friends and family came from GA, FL and TX to spend time with us. We miss you, Daniel. You’ve made it to white shores and beyond, a far green country, under a swift sunrise. Remember, you promised to meet us when we come.
