Writer's Block: Father nature

What is your fondest childhood memory of your father or grandfather?

what a question. seriously. my dad left when i was 8, disappeared and reappeared throughout adolescence, and finally vanished around age 21. i found him again....right around age 32, and realised i just couldn't deal with yet another vanishing act.

so, i vanished first.

when he died a couple of years later, my mom phoned me. she found out from a random google search that turned up his obit. when i called his current, and 6th wife, all she could say was "why didn't you ever call him back? you broke his heart."

oh.

okay, then.

I want to say something, but I don't know what I can that won't sound banal.
I read this and it affected me.
