20 years ago today

My Daddy died. I was 11.  It was horrible.  He died in the hospital, one day before his birthday (January 12). 

 I missed out on some great memories with my Dad, due to family feuds/drama.  Whatever you do, don't put kids in the middle of that shit. 

It wasn't one persons fault, the adults acted like children.  Don't tell lies, lies can hurt people. 

Lastly, thanks for your service to our country during Vietnam War. 

Nuff said.  

circa 1984

See you someday Dad!


  1. I was also 11 when my dad died. It will be 20 years in April. Sometimes I can't believe it has been that long. I am so sorry that you were put in the middle of family drama that took you away from your dad. No fair.

  2. Thinking of you and your family!

  3. Jen, I'm really sorry to hear that. Life can be so unfair. Ever since my dad's cancer diagnosis I have really felt others' losses more deeply. I hope you have peace today and in the future.

  4. I'm sorry you lost your daddy at such a young age. No one deserves that. Thinking of you today.

  5. That had to be very hard on you. So sorry to hear this, big hug!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
