Michael Holt, was my father. He was the best dad a girl could have. I was twelve years old when I lost him because a man high on pills decided to go for a drive.
I know there are people out there that feel how I feel, but it is the worst feeling in the world when you can't hear your father's voice, can't hear his stories, can't get his hugs.The worst thing is,I can't hear him say the things that only mean so much coming from a father, such as "I'm proud of you", or "I love you." My life has changed so much, and it'll never be the same without him, but I hope that my story gets out there, and prevents someone else from abusing substances and driving.
