    Daddy, I love you. I may not be able to show

    you sometimes, but I do. After every phone call I whisper I love you too because I know you don't always have the time for me to tell you. Whenever I stay round and run out of things to say, it's not because I'm bored. It's because I want to make everything that we talk about...

    I love my dad so much.

    He's always helping me and he puts up with me when I'm being moody. He's helped me all through schooling and he's always supported me in sports and everything. I love him!❤️

    Dear dad, Daddy I wish you could look around

    you and see how in denial you are. I know you hate the fact that I came out the way I did, wanting to die and cut every night. But I can't help how I was born and I was slow and being bullied every damn day and all you and mama could say was 'I'm trying to get attention'. After...

    I've tried time and time again to have some sort of relationship with you, and time and time again you prove that you don't give a flying **** about me. Growing up, I dealt with the fact that you weren't around and I learned that you never truly cared for me. I will never forget...

    My dad cut me out of his substantial will.

    It's ok though, dad, because I support myself and can provide for my kids and know how to be a parent unlike you. Also, you deserved to die alone. You never looked after your kids anyway.
