Randy Waites had just grabbed the television remote, got comfortable on the couch, and turned on the weather network. It was a pretty typical day, one that he assumed would be uneventful like many others. Except not all of Randy’s life was uneventful…he had grown up without being able to know his father, but managed to move on anyway, and become the man that he is today.

Then a man came on the weather report and immediately caught Randy’s attention, they happened to share a last name. A name like Eddie Waites wouldn’t be that common in Sacramento and Randy didn’t know anyone else with it. It only appeared for 10 seconds but it stayed on Randy’s mind all day.
