Autumn's father and I have been friends for a long time. I used to baby-sit his baby girl Autumn all the time when she was around 5 years old while he and his wife were off at work. By the time Autumn started going to high school, she and her parents moved to a new location. I was upset that my best friend had just moved. They were pretty much the only family I had ever known. Being 40 years of age, life sure does suck when you're lonely.
