My heart hurts for you and for myself. I was very young when my dad Herbert Otto Stein came into my life. He was a funny and kind dad to me. I never remember a time where he was not a kind man. I remember him smoking pipes and he had these funny little mugs around and found out at a later time those were beer steins. Every time I see those or smell that apple vannila smell of a pipe I always thought of my dad. When my mom and Herb split up I was sent to my grandmothers and never saw my dad again. I asked many times where did he go and I got nothing. I am hurt really hurt that my dad didn't keep up with us when he left. But, I still love him and when I found out yesterday that he passed and I couldn't or didn't get invited to the funeral and then find out that I was no longer a part of his life my heart crushed. I know we are not perfect and you may have not even of known we existed but he was my dad and I forgive him for not getting to cont to know him. I am today hurting as you are today. I loved him and still do and will always. Just remember me and I will remember you in this time of year. If possible I would like to meet you so that I can see maybe pictures of his life after my life with him. I really am sorry for your loss and I Pray that we can all heal. I have more to heal from from the loss twice so please forgive me if this letter is a little upsetting but he was my dad and always will be. He called me Susie.
In God we trust he is not hurting and in Heaven where he can live a eternal life.
