Sunset over the Atlantic marked the end of a wonderful day. His wife and children had come to visit them at their house on the Spanish coast. They had spent most of the day on the beach, playing, laughing and swimming. How good it was to be able to see his daughters growing up even if he could not be with them all the time.
