The swish-swish-swish of the sprinklers brought memories flooding back to him; happy thoughts of warm lemonade and bare feet, sun-baked skin and dirt. Memories that made him long for happier times, before the cancer diagnosis, the divorce, the court-ordered anger-management courses.

You tugged at my heartstrings until I read - "the court-ordered anger-management courses" and then I laughed. I love the switching of emotions and you always do that so well.

I'm not sure that was your intention, but it was my reaction and why I liked it. This piece seemed Coen Brothers-esque to me, which is my kind of humor, but maybe others are scratching their heads thinking, "Huh? What's she laughing at?" :)
