    Don't Be Afraid

    They sometimes say that we never really grow up fully until our parents leave us. But actually your father hasn't left you, and neither has mine. They are inside us and they made us what we are. I remember when my father died I used to have a lot of dreams. In my dreams...

    For many years, life has been hard

    for us. But now, when it's better, the person whom I really want to share my happiness with, the person who's been there, was gone. Happy 14th, pa.

    When I was young, I was a daddy's girl.

    It was a hot summer day. My dad and mom loaded us kids up in the car to go swimming. When we arrived, all of the kids there were jumping into the water. My sister and I thought we were supposed to do the same. We jumped in and started drowning. My dad dived in fully clothed...
