Revealing Losses

October 4th

The will certainly revealed some of the losses in my stepfather’s life. Not only did his adult son pass away prematurely, but sadly, his 22-year-old grandson died as well during the time he was married to mom. I can’t ever remember dad being gone any length of time for unexplained absences. My parents traveled extensively without their children, but I highly doubt they went together for any funeral for his other family. Dad must have been grieving in silence for the bottled up losses because my mother had the master key to unlock the many hidden truths.

None of the individuals, especially his daughter were jumping out of the pages of this document and saying, “Here I am!” It listed the name of my father’s son’s widow and also a granddaughter that was close as sisters to my age, however, this elusive family was difficult to find until I read the obituary of his ex-wife’s husband.

  4. It’s insane that these findings were made but nothing was done about it. All these years later, you are still waiting for the wrongs to be righted.
