Made me cry! I don't recall any fatherly love for my dad was not the type of father who showed any acts of love as I did for my kids when I was with them. Maybe in my growing up era, the situation for my dad to show any such fatherly love was simply not there.
Anyway, there's no point in regretting anything. It's all in the past.
Those of you who have your children with you ought to shower your love on them before it's time for your being taken away from them either by unforseen circumstances
