‘At the time it wasn’t a big deal cause i was just a kid so I did not know what death meant. But growing up, i had wishes and it hurts not having his guidance ‘
But my mom was always there, sacrificed so much, and by that i mean everything. Her savings, her happiness, her choices, even her will, just so we (her kids) wouldn’t feel fatherless. She’s been both a mother and a father. You can imagine how tough it is without any support nor good income. ?
