Dads Matter – Photo of Son Kissing Father’s Casket Goes Viral

I’m a sucker for photos like these. Dads mean so much to their children. It’s a bond that popular culture at best takes for granted and at worst revels in its erosion.

Quoting from WISN:

Trooper’s son bids final goodbye to his father with one kiss

In the photo, Brian Falb Jr., 12, says his final goodbye by kissing the casket of his father — New York State Trooper Brian Falb Sr.

Falb Sr., 47, died after a year-long battle with stage-four brain cancer.

He was assigned to the World Trade Center site after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York City.

Falb Sr. died March 13. He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Mary, and the couple’s four children.

As both a son and a father, photos like this move me. Prayers for the repose of the soul of Brian Falb Sr. ☩
