Father's Day 2017 (Letter From My Dad)

On this Father's Day I want to let my father speak for himself. I'm sure you'll all understand why I think so much of my father after you read this letter to me, written 43 years ago when I came out.

Good piece.  What did your father do?

..."don't feel like you have to take on the whole world..."  Great advice from a father to his son.  I wish I'd listened to my Dad more often.  It might have saved me several decades of angst and disappointment.  R&L

My father was a Millwright at General Motors. A factory worker.
