Almost immediately upon learning that we were going to be parents, my husband started talking about taking our first child fishing. This classic father/child image created an instant bridge between him, his future daughter and his own father. For him, it was a childhood memory that he longed to pass down. When we lost our child, this symbol remained with us. Fishing is so tightly associated with our daughter that we even buried her with a small fishing bobber.
