My father was a Vietnam vetfrom 1966 to 1967. He was shot in the war and became addicted to morphine, which drove him ultimately to heroin.
My father Rudy was a fun guy to be around. However, at times he would totally change. Heroin robbed me of my father long before he died.
I really miss him especially now that I have two children of my own. Dad never got to see his grandchildren. I am incredibly saddened by this as you can imagine.
My parents were divorced when I was young and I was always being reminded of how worthless he was by my mother's side. I wish I could talk to him & tell him now that I've grown that I understand him more. I know he wasn't all to blame.
I wish I had told him, I feel guilty about some of the things I said to him when I was young. I now know he tried hard and my mother was selfish when it came to us kids.
R.I.P. Daddy. I love you papa.
Love your son, Flugal
