Father was the cause

I am 18 years old...in 2003 my father was the victim of a disease and alcohol was his weakness. Jason Neill Abbott died on March 27th 2003 leaving behind me and my sister we were 8 and 9 at the time. He had a bad night and decided to turn to the bottle, only come to find out it wasn't just himself he hurt that night. He drove head on into an 18 wheeler going 70+ on the highway he drove up the wrong side of the highway. Not only hurting himself but many other innocent by standard involved. My father was a good dad when he was sober, don't get me wrong love him forever and i resent him for that addiction. He did the best he could, but please before you make the mistake and think it is okay to drive while intoxicated by any means, be sure and THINK before you make any kind of "grown-up" decision. Not just for your sake but the innocent people around and your family you will be leaving behind, to deal with the loss of your presence.

Your dad was someone who made me feel accepted when I didn't feel that way at all , I hope you have a lot of good memories with him. I think about him often.-r

I am so sorry
by: Missing Ryan

I am sorry you have to go through everything you are going through. It literarly bites to be in that position. Obviously you are a very mature teenager and realize the tragedy alcohol can bring. I am keeping you, your sister, and mother in my prayers.
