The Kustka family still relies on each other despite the life-changing situation. The author brings the readers to experience the laughter and tears shared by her father from a wheelchair.

Arnie was a family man who supplied humor and love to his family. His life journey was never easy as he was bound to a wheelchair after a blood infection. His family went through ups and downs, trying to cope with what happened. Through it all, his wife Shirley stayed with him by his side.
