Sylvester’s thoughts

“I like how my dad makes them!”
— Sylvester

Sylas’s thoughts

“They are nice and hot.”
— Sylas

“To my addiction, you had a hold on my life for so long. Because of you, I missed opportunities to spend time with my boys, moments I’ll never get back. It’s been eight years since I’ve followed your lead. While you’re never far away, I’ve finally left you in my shadow. These days, I’m making the decisions. I’ve chosen to focus on my education. My dad wasn’t the kind to look up to or follow in his footsteps, but now my sons Sylvester and Sylas are watching me go to college. And I’m not missing out anymore. We have pancakes or breakfast, do our homework together every day after school, and drive remote control cars on weekends. They’re watching me become a better father and man. I’m not giving up – my boys are counting on me.”
