This is for all of who are hypothetically orphaned. 64 People

    It's Their Loss

    They Have All Left My Life.

    For all my life I have been the black sheep in my family.  I admit I was rebellious, and yes had a wildish nature.  I was brought up in a strict catholic family.  Communicating any type of negative emotion was not allowed.  I was not allowed to...
