remembered

sorry I've been a little inactive here. my ex-husband, father to four of my children, passed away on the 12th after a six month battle with cancer. sadly, he was estranged from his kids and, while he wasn't the greatest of dads or the best of husbands, the kids and I do remember the happier times with love.

  2. My condolances to both you and your children Serena. I have an "ex" myself with whom my children were estranged for several years and can understand a little of how difficult this may be for your family.

    Thank you for sharing this with us and please know that I send love and healing to your family.

  4. How sad that he wasn't able to establish a relationship with the kids before he passed. I am glad you can hang on to some good memories, and how sweet of you to not have bitterness toward him.
