My father died in 1986 and my world as I knew it changed forever. Growing up and having my father around was great. I took it for granted that he would always be around. I was only 13yrs old when he died and I never wanted anyone else to take his place. There was a void in my life with his passing away that I never knew would happen.
Since his passing on, I have had very few male role models in my life; I have not looked for any. I didn’t think I needed one either.
