i miss you dad. i wish i could have had the opportunity to know you. i find myself googling your name and dont know why. i think about you everyday and i cry often...especially when i see fathers on television or when friends talk about their relationships with their parents. i like to think that you had an amazing personality. my mom tells me you were really down to earth and i love that. in that way, i try to be like you. i have no one to talk to about this so i'm addressing this to you and to anyone else out there who feels lonely or who has lost a parent at a young age. i'm there for you. dad you were a leo, and thats my favorite sign. i used to hate you because you left me and you would always drink and smoke but i understand better now that you were weak but i know you loved me. and i loved you too even though i ignored you in my younger years. im so sorry. im so so so sorry i shut you out. i sometimes blame myself for your death. you didnt think your daughter loved you because she never wanted to talk to you so you drank and smoked until you got cancer. but i did want to talk to you, but it was hard! you were always drunk on the phone and you would make me feel so bad about not coming to visit. my mom wouldnt let me go stay with a drunk, it wasnt my fault. i wish you could have been more of a man and overcome your addiction so that you could have watched your daughter grow into a woman. and my mom needed you. she deserved someone who loved her and i know you did. but apparently you didnt love us as much as you were addicted to alcohol. its sad. we would be a lot better off, including you, if you would have changed. my mom would have never gotten with that sick pig lathan and she would have never been abused. and i would have never been abused. and my brother could have been your son. but now i realize why everything happens for a reason. my mom is fighting her way out of adversity, and so is my brother and now so am i. you have helped inspire me to MAKE A CHANGE. if not for myself, then for the people i care about. i want to help my mom and brother and the rest of my family and especially myself. i am repeating your mistakes by being selfish, and not going to school, and looking to drugs to find happiness. but its a vicious and LETHAL cycle and its going to be very hard to break. but im going to do it. for you dad. and for all the lonely people. ive been so selfish and i havent even realized it. but i know that i dont want to end up dead like you one day so i want to make a change before its too late. its going to be so hard but when times get really tough, im going to think of you, and think about my mother and her young daughter samantha who were on their own and survived. im going to fight through all of my pain for my past self and my mother's past self because we were victims and we are still paying for it. every great journey begins with a single step. and if you've taught me anything as a father (or lack there of) its that that first step is the most important one because its the hardest. once you start walking, you have somewhere to go. i need somewhere to go. you had somewhere to go but you didnt take the first step. you knew that if you quit drinking, you could have stayed with us. but you didnt. and you died. i wont let the same thing happen to me. i promise you that dad. i love you sooooo much and i think the world of you. and the lord knows you passed down some precious genes to me because im going to change this world for the better. and its beginning with this single step. im washing this dirt from my hands. the guilt and hopelessness are washing away with every word i type. and now having just re-read all that ive said, i feel alot better. i would have never expected venting in a comment box on your internet obituary would change my perspective, but it has. i dont think anything is a coincidence. god is constantly communicating with us and i'm beginning to learn his language. im out of typing space. om
