"In my book I talk about the fire inside dad's chest. To me, that's what it feels like," Kastle said. And his story has resonated with his 6-year-old daughter, Raegan. "No matter what, when they're mad or sad at you, they still love you," explained Raegan, admiring her father's book in her playroom. "There's always a fire in his heart, but no matter what, I know there's love." Read »
