22 years without my father-----11/1/09

On November 1st,2009 it was 22 years that I lost my sainted father.I lost my father at the age of 40.He died one month after my birthday.He came home from the hospital and he died in my arms and it was one of the most traumatic events in my life.I dont talk about this.I cant.It is just too painful.My father was the greatest person.He loved to read.He loved books and fine literature and music.He loved television and one of the shows that he loved was The Honeymooners.Jackie Gleason was his favorite and in 1959,at the age of 12...I saw my first broadway show.It was called Take Me Along with Jackie Gleason and Gleason was the Great One.After seeing him perform...he was truly great.My father was working in the dye house then.The conditions were dangerous.There was no insurance.It was just a sweat shop and he decided to change his life.My father decided at 40...he wanted to be a mailman.He enjoys talking to people.He brought the book and he studied every night and really studied.Come the day of the test,.my father passed with a 98....he had the highest mark.Then he started to work in the post office and he never looked back.Daddy was special and I will never forget him.Daddy was a Yankeee fan and it would have thrilled him to see them win the World Series for the 27th time.Heres to you,,,.papa! We won! And I hope to see you soon for it is so hard without you.vader.
