I will forever be grateful for Fathers Day 1984. It was the last one that I had with my father alive. I am grateful that I managed to tear down the invisible wall that existed between him and me.
I had written a 6 page letter to him telling him everything that I just could not voice to him. After he read it he was in tears and I was in the biggest bear hug of my life. He whispered in my ear, “I love you and am so proud of you.” Rest in Peace former SGT USAAF (United States Army Air Force). I am also grateful that I had him in my life until he was 58 years old when he died 14 August 1984. He was just 5 when his father passed away.
