My partner JT and I both love Dwight Yoakam.
Two days ago I was working with a temporary partner and I turned on the song "Please Daddy" by Dwight Yoakam. It's a song about a woman who leaves her husband and little daughter. The daughter tells her father not to cry and that she'll be with him through the hard time. It's a sad old country song.
Just as the song was ending, we were dispatched to a Sudden Death.
A 41 year old woman had died of undetermined causes, leaving behind a common-law spouse and four children. As we entered the home, the youngest daughter, 7, was consoling her father as he cried.
Sometimes this job sucks. No matter how much you love it.
