My dad’s obituary


The Gold Digger has her child Pearl listed
as if she & Dad had a child together which is not the case at all

 my brother Jim 4 who is Dad’s child should’ve
been listed prior than Pearl since he is both Daddy’s only son but also
because he’s older than Pearl


They don’t even mention that Dad had a great love
of music & played sax in several bands during his younger years

Dad only has 2 grandchildren & 1 great grandchild –
all the rest of the children listed are from pearl’s 2 marriages & 2
of those are her step children


I guess family pressured Donna into putting the fact
that Dad was married to my mom Elsie,

‘cause Donna has always tried to act like Elsie
didn’t exist & would get mad if I introduced myself to any one as Jim’s
daughter by his 1st wife Elsie

 now how can Donna justify getting mad for me
telling the truth about who I am?
