Sorry for the interruption....

THis is my first post in quite some time. The reason for that is that last October my father died. He was 60. He died of acute pancreatitis, and it was quite sudden. A decade ago I would have said there was no way he'd see 60; five years ago I would have said he has access to the best medical care in the state [the Veteran's Affairs hospital system] and so will outlive me.

And now I have a half-sister. After my father died I had genetic testing done to confirm the long-heard rumor we knew but never had proved. So finally after decades of crying myself to sleep praying for my family to be put back together [and offering to God any body part he'd care to take of mine iin return for the brother and sister he took from me], I have proven the paternity of my half-sister. A half sister that was taken from her biological mother at age 6 by the state and put into foster care, not really knowing who her father was. Now she does. I will see to that. I will tell her all about my father and how he turned his life around.

A certain friend of mine brought this to my attention, so I had to reply:
