I'm glad you got to talk to him!


Great post - I love that you share these sorts of realizations with us through your blog. It's so good that your uncle shared all of those stories with you - and great that you had someone to ask. What a gift for both of you!

Gosh, I must admit reading your blog made me feel a little guilty. I talk to my mom . . .but really don't know a lot about her life before she was a mom . . .and so, thanks to you - I will be calling her to ask her about her childhood . ..so I can learn more about her & me . . .Thank you, for your honesty . .sometimes we all hate to admit how totally dysfunctional our families can be! (I tell my kids I just want to be the FUN part of dysfunctional). let's face it all families since Adam and Eve have been dysfunctional to some degree! So, enjoy the things you learned about your dad!


Wow, what an neat experience for you (and me). It makes me realize I should ask my in-laws more about themselves and my mom as well. Sadly, she is the only one left on my side for grandparents.
Would you mind posting the list of questions that you used? I would like to connect with family over the next few weeks and find out more about them. I think I'll type them up and send a copy to my brothers and sisters-in-law.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
