Many people think that depression is something you just have to live with when you get older, but it's not.

I'm angry, but at the same time, I miss my son. Whether they catch the gentlemen or don't catch him, that doesn't matter to me at this point. It's not going to bring my son back, but I'm just thankful that God gave him to me for 18 years. I just wish it would have been a little longer.

I changed my mind because of a scene between Howard Cunningham and Richie. The father-son situation was written so movingly, I fell in love with the project.
