Fathers Obituary

My father was far more than a fucking delivery driver. He owned his own business. He was survived by two daughters and one son, but of course out of spite of our mother, his family purposefully left me and my older sister out of the obituary. As the 20th anniversary of my fathers death approaches next February, I can’t help but think of how different my life would have been the last 20 years if he were alive…
