Thread Name: For everyone who lost their Father
Subject: RE: For everyone who lost their Father
In many ways, my father was broken and all the king's horses and all the king's men never were able to put him together again. As a young man, my father's faults were far more obvious than his goodness. It took my failures in life to come to find compassion and love for my father, and we were blessed with many years of closeness before he passed away just short of 92 years old. I see a lot of him in me, both his strengths and his weaknesses, and I love him for both of them.
