Here is my Facebook post of September 1, 2019, one month after my son died.
One month ago, my middle son, Daniel Capes, died. He was 36 years old. This picture was taken on our annual beach vacation in 2004 in Gulf Shores, AL. Daniel is on the left. Jordan Capes, his younger brother, is on the right. Because we missed the beach trip this year, we took him and the family to a beach house on Galveston Island two weeks before he died. He loved the beach, the breeze, the sound of the waves, and a good book in the shade of a big umbrella. Son, no beach vacation will ever be the same without you, your smile, or your antics. We miss you and hope you are enjoying white shores and beyond, a vast green country under a swift sunrise.
