24. This is the first Father's day for my sons

without their father who killed himself the day after his birthday last December 13th. I am having brunch with my oldest son today and hope to get him talking about his feelings. My youngest son communicates very little with me because he blames me for breaking up our 32 year marriage when I left my husband 13 months before he blew his brains out. It's a long story--I've posted some about it over the last 18 months--but not going into details now. Suffice it to say it's a difficult day.

My own father has been gone now for 17 years. He lived to be 91. Although he was what once was known as a Rockefeller Republican, I think he would be appalled by what has become of the Republican party. He was not an affectionate man, but I always knew he loved me.
