As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

This photo was taken before I was born, we think around 1978 although I'm
taking it to my grandparents shortly to try and get my Gramps to put a more
accurate date on it. It has all the most important men from my childhood
included in it, It's liek a capsule containing my whole life history!

Photo one group shot '78/'79(ish)

Photo two - this man is Peter. He's my Dad, He died suddenly in 1985 when I
was only 4. One day he was here, the next he was gone

Photo three - this man is Tony, my maternal Grandad, . We went with my mom
and lived with my grandparents for a short while after my Dad passed away
giving my mom chance to grieve and recover from the shock of becoming a
widow and single parent overnight. While everyone else was hearing "You just
wait until you father gets home!!" This is the man I was threatened with, he
was, and still is my male role model from early childhood and I know I could
still go to him for anything! He's been with me FOREVER!

Photo four - This man is Dave, he was one of Dad's very good friends, He is
now my stepdad - My mom and Dave got together when I was 14, They married in
2001 when i was 20.I truly would not wish for her to be with anyone else! He
is a fantastic Dad to me, my sister and brother and Grandfather for the
blonde kid. He's supported my mom and cared for us for years and I'm glad it
was him my mom married! I hope he sticks around a whole lot longer!!
