Incredibly moving.

It does leave me wondering, was their hurt from his own dad that your dad hadn’t healed from?

Thank you for sharing your story.

Oh there was definitely wounds. He always referred to my grandfather as his biggest bully. My uncle confirmed that their childhood was rough, but also my dad intentionally chose to rebel. There was blame on both sides which I stayed away from until my dad attacked my memories of my grandfather, at that point it was too much.
