  • Yes! He is more of a father to me than my own dad.

  • Yes, and I miss the man every day. He had a horrible time during his teens- early 20's (he was in concentration camps from 16-22.) Yet he overcame the illness, suffering and abject anger to raise 4 children for a better life. He was a stubborn, ego centric, old coot at times, but I loved him.

  • Yes. He didn't grow up with a Mother. His Father is all he had and taught him very well.

  • He loved his father very much but his father and mother divorced when he was 2 or 3...I guess after that he didnt see him much, then he died when DH was about 21....I don't know the whole entire story because DH rarely talks about it but I don't think they were very close...he was much closer to his grandfather

  • Yes, indeed! And a wonderful mother, as well. God rest both their loving souls. I knew them since I was 11 yrs old. They raised an amazing man & gentleman. I am lucky to have him by my side. I wish they were still alive so I could have the honor of having such wonderful in-laws.

  • I know he grew up with him, but I've never met the man. He lives in England, and we live in the States. They haven't spoke in years because of a falling out, so no clue. Maybe one day, when we get the chance to go over there, I'll get to meet the man that helped make my awesome Hubby....

  • No, his father was a horrible alcoholic who was verbally abusive and made it well known to my husband he was a "mistake" and only yelled his whole life..

  • No, my hubs parents divorced when he was 1yr old, and when he was growing up his dad was not around. He really did not get to know or have much contact with his dad until he was an adult... and then he only had 2 yrs with his dad before his dad died.
