This is his first birthday since his father passed away. It also happens to be a momentous one, being his sweet 16. Although this would usually be a really sad moment, his dad found a way to still give him an amazing birthday surprise. He had a card picked out and signed ahead of time and had already bought his son's gift, a brand-new electric guitar. He asked the store to hold onto it until his sons birthday so he would have no way of stumbling upon it early. Hands-down the best birthday present ever.
