Your story is a sad one in regard to your father. My dear father passed away when I was very young and my stepfather didn't know how to be a loving father to a child. But you and I both survived without having the love of our biological fathers while we were growing up, and that's the main thing, right? I had a favorite uncle, my dad's brother that would come to visit me occasionally and he was a great father figure in my life who treated me with much kindness whenever he would come for a visit.

Like others above, I sympathize - very sad to hear that. Still, you were blessed to have had a grandma who loved you a lot. I don't know which is better - an absent father, or someone who's around but abusive.

Wish my siblings & I had spent lots of time with our grandparents, but only our grandmas lived long, and they didn't live with us.

I like the honesty you write about your life. I am glad you appreciate all those around you. I think your father didnt do that that is why he seems to be a bitter person.

You are an inspiration to me Lee. By knowing all your sufferings during your childhood and how you managed them, I have many things to learn from you. And one more thing that I want to point out is that I am afraid that I might be like your your husband. I have never give any present to my wife. I am ashamed of my innocence. I learnt a good lesson from your story Lee.

You suffered a lot dear but at the end you'll gain the good you done to your dad, you will be proud of yourself and feel peace of mind, God will reward you, be with god he will be with you , I'm here for any thing I can do for you.

Each of us has his own sad childhood.
It was just different from each other.
I could say, yours was really a very sad life.
But you are still so lucky, for you have made peace with him before he died.
having made peace with him means you are peace with yourself also.
Jesus taught us to be forgiving and be humble.
forgiving him means you are humbling yourself in the eyes of God.
This is a very good story you shared with us you know.
