Stephen Straus went to the Highland Park parade every year.

His son tells CBS 2's Charlie De Mar, that while life goes on, there's not a day that goes by he doesn't think about his father or that day.

"Loved ones can just disappear suddenly, but this was different, obviously."

It's that suddenness that has proven to be the hardest over the past 12 months for those who love Stephen Straus. Like his son Jon.
