Family First
Family First
10/17/2019

I'm grateful for your message and the moral compass you have helped me develop in the absence of my mother, who died when I was 24.  My dad, a handsome man, who was only 48 when he was widowed with four children, instinctively implemented your principles of "family first," and despite our home being broken by death and not divorce, declined dates until we were all adults and out of the house.  This selfless act of personal sacrifice allowed us to adequately grieve the loss of our mother, which gave us the time and space to develop healthy coping skills that are so obviously lacking in many of the millennial generation.

My dad turns 60 next month, and I will forever admire him in his commitment to his wife and children.  I hope anyone who finds themselves in a similar position considers devoting themselves to the healthy development of their children over the development of their personal lives.  I am a product of how that sacrifice and investment in one's family over one's self has paid off.  My mother, God rest her soul, chose wisely.  Thank you for having common sense in a world gone mad and thank for always being an encouraging voice of reason too.
