My heart is still breaking over the loss of the man that I referred to as my dad. I've never met my bio dad, honestly don't know if I would care too. So the man that I called dad all these years was always there for me. He believed in me and ACCEPTED me when basically no-one else in my family did! He was the ONE person that I could count on to love me no matter what.
I got the news last Friday the 11th that he passed away. I couldn't believe it!! Shock and then the denial hit me and it hit hard!! I was a wreck!! And I swear the WORSE way to get that kind of news was the way I received it...in a text!!!
He was a great man, very lovable, caring, hard-working and just an all around great person to have around you. Always smiled. I think that's where I got my attitude from and always have a smile on my face no matter how hard it gets, always smile and continue on knowing that it could always be worse so be thankful that its not that bad really.
This man helped me in so many ways. I knew him and he raised me as his daughter from the age of 5 and I am now 41. My mother selfishly divorced him years ago, yes I say selfishly because he was a diabetic and she just didn't want to deal with him anymore so to speak!! Selfish in my opinion. Him and my mother had a son together, whom sadly enough turned into my mothers son and inherited her not so great traits to put it nicely. We were never that close and probably won't ever be. But, we had one thing in common, we both loved and adored our dad.
Thankfully I have my children that were here for me as well as some awesome friends. And one of my best friends came over to comfort me and make sure that I was doing okay. He kept my mind off of it and spent some much needed time with me. So thankful for that.
Sadly enough there is drama going on between the two families which I don't and won't ever understand how anyone could do the drama thing when we've lost someone so close and dear to us.
With all that being said I will always refer to Bo as my dad or daddy!! I love him and always will with all my heart and I am very thankful that I grew up in a home with him as my father figure. He was a great man and I know that he's looking down and over me right now.
RIP Bo. Love always!!
