My dad was sometimes a difficult man. He was an alcoholic and kept everything inside. He died when I was 23. I was too young to appreciate him and the difficult life I knew he had. Even though he isnt here physically, everyday I get older I have come to appreciate him and to understand he did the best he could. He will always be missed dearly. I love you dad.
