It's genuinely saddening to hear of MAB members with less than happy memories about their fathers.

My Dad wasn't the sharpest tool in the box, but he was very fair-minded, and calm and measured, and slow to condemn someone without knowing the full picture. I find as I get older that those are the values I like to see in people around me.

My Dad was my hero when I was younger, but, alas, I was a child and did not know the depth of his depavity. As I got older into my teen years I saw him for selfish, person he really was.

I hae tried a few times to mend the fence, but it is broken purley by his not being an emotionally adult person. My 14yr old has a far greater depth of person to her than he does.

It is for the best that for my family, and myself I let that bridge burn.

What a terrible shame.

I feel lucky that for me, it was the other way around. I had little time for him when I was a young man, because he wasn't as smart as me, and his interests weren't my interests. It took me a long time to see his merits.

These days, I sometimes think I'm turning into him, and that's fine by me - I could do a lot worse.
