Former Husker found hope in boy's letter.
From the Lincoln Journal-Star:
He would have been a good dad.
The first time, he was so young. He figured it'd be no big deal -- just 15 minutes of scraping and it'd be over. But it wasn't like that.
The second time, he begged her not to do it, said he'd pay all the bills, raise the kid himself. Nothing worked, so he drove her to Omaha. Protesters were there that day.
He drove to a nearby park and sat there and bawled.
