"Dad passed away last year year so this movie holds a special place in my heart. In essence, don't wait until it's late in the ball game to tell special people in your life that you love them. You don't get a do over in life. Not only does it make the other person feel good but doesn't it make you feel good when you profess genuine love for others. Do it, you'll love it. "
