In most families, there's an heirloom or two that's been handed down from generation to generation. It could be something life changing like a family farm or business. Maybe it's a classic car that your dad gave to you, and his dad gave to him.

No matter what the heirloom, it's a special moment when the day finally comes for a father to let one go.

That day came for me during a recent visit with my dad. There is one possession he's always kept close to his heart. Over the years, so much joy and laughter was brought into his life because of this one piece of personal property.

Now, he was passing this gift on to me so future generations could experience what he had enjoyed for so many decades. And It was no doubt a bittersweet moment when dad handed over this cherished piece of family history and placed it into my hands.

So, what was this AIR-loom he wouldn't entrust me with until I was mature enough?

See for yourself.
