Father's Day 2022

Today is Father's Day but I have no father to celebrate this day with. Dad died nearly nine years ago on July 13, 2013. Dad did some terrible things but he was a good provider.

Dad worked hard for forty years or longer. He worked at a place called "Berkline" for several years and he worked at a place called "Woodcraft" for thirty-five years.

Because I have Schizophrenia, I've never been able to work. Dad supported me even after I became an adult. May he Rest In Peace. If you still have your father, go visit him today or call him. Let him know how much you care.
