I can’t get away from your reputation. Everywhere I go. Everyone I talk to. Every event I attend. Everybody knows Pete.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “Is Pete your daddy?” Or have been introduced as, “Hey, you know Pete Reed, right? This is his son…” Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I look a little bit like you. Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that you’ve left a huge impression on so many people.
No matter where I go, your reputation precedes me.
And Dad, you may not know it, but you’ve made my life much easier.
Your exemplary life at home and in the community causes others to look at me differently.
