In Wales, the 200th U.K. soldier to die in the Afghanistan conflict was memorialized this weekend. Pvt. Richard Hunt would have been 22 today, Hundreds came to pay their respects.
His father Phillip, enjoyed playing Call of Duty: World at War with his son. He left a copy of the game at his grave (along with a wreath and many other memorials). It bore the note: “Happy Birthday ‘Hunty’. Play you again one day. Dad.”

No dad? Mine died when I was 16. Still one of my more traumatic experiences.
My dad is still alive and fairly well… hangin’ on that fat bastard.
This is brutal. I carved a chess set with my Dad when I was 11. We played nearly every day for a year. When he died, I buried him with it. You have to let go of those attachments.
