Yeah,...I had to have a few of those "this is why your son didn't come home" conversations with a Parent or two...very painful for anyone involved....
Regardless,..you did a good thing,..what we'd call a "Mitzva" (A Blessing in Hebrew)....

Well, it is done. Met dad tonight and had a good visit about the boy and the gun, family, and the good and the bad, and the happy and the sad. Bottom line is, dad is a really good, down to earth guy. Hunter, gather, shooter type. He was very grateful to have the gun.
