The Man Who Influenced Me!

I chose to write about my father for my influence paper. My father was not

Although he passed away when I was fourteen years old it does not change the fact

that he still influences me to this day.

I can remember a lot about my father although I was pretty young when he

died. He died at the age of forty of a massive heart attack. My father married a few

months before he passed and my older sister lived with him at the time. My father

lived an hour from me, which wasn’t too bad. I wanted to live with my father so bad

but my mother told me I had to wait until I finished school in which I was attending

Tecumseh High School. It wasn’t far from my father, but to me it was far enough.
I remember wanting to move in with my father because I loved him so much.

He was always such a happy person and always had positive things to say. Although

my father passed away and it completely devastated me that did not change how I felt

about him. When you love and care for someone so much and God takes them from

you in a second it can be very painful yet people can use it as a learning tool as I did.

and I said to my sister,” He’s not your real dad, he’s mine.” That just broke her heart.

She ran off crying and my father was so upset with me. He talked to me about how

that was uncalled for and explained to me how he loved her just as much as he loved...
