Philip Tarver murdered his mother in December last year and threatened to kill his father too.
This dad creates how-to videos on YouTube, teaching everything from how to jumpstart a car to ironing a shirt. Lockdown was the perfect catalyst for Robert to launch his channel showing people basic skills he thinks everyone should know.
Photographer Josh Rossi planned an awesome surprise for his 5-year-old.

I Thought Cancer Had Left Me Infertile But Today I'm Celebrating Father's Day As A Dad For The First Time
I'm so proud and I have absolutely loved being a dad. Without a doubt, my cancer and being told it would never happen has made me appreciate it even more.

No one prepares you for the intensity of grief and loss. There is no warning about the speed at which you are expected to close someone else's life. The documents you must sign and the countless phone calls to funeral directors, each time reminding you of the loss you have suffered.
