21 years later, I still miss you!

My father Jerry Ransom Dickinson II was killed by a drunk driver on September 28, 1989. I had just turned 5 years old on the 25th. It's been 21yrs since he was taken from this world and I never got to know him. Each year that passes, I feel the memory of him slipping further away. I don't want to forget. I distance myself from his family due to all the alcoholism. But they treat me like I think I'm "too good". I'm not, I just want better for my own children. I will not subject them to that. I'm very thankful for the dad who has raised me all these years. He's been a blessing in my life. Michael, if you ever read this, I forgive you.

I am really sorry for the loss of your father, but I have to say this, though it might seem out of place; You are awesome! I know you miss your dad, I still miss my loved one (16 years here) but you have taken to most valuable lesson from a drunk driving accident and are trying to prevent it for your family and applying the knowledge of loss that may come from this horrific tragedies to your own life. I hope you pass your story onto anyone who hears it, it is incredible the impact you have made just by forgiving Micheal.

You will be in my prayers, I hope your strength carries on!
