        wierd thinking back then was Oh if we had a baby things would be different.  It wasn't.   I do have one regret about our situation.  Before he died....he spoke of our rocky relationship and our son whom was estranged from him.   I regret I never tried to reach him to regain sobriety because he was a troubled young man  and he died a lonely old man.

        thank you for your kind comments.
