Re: Kirkin' out the Jans
I certainly wasn't prepared for it. Mom had died 5 years earlier, and even though I was 19 when Dad died, I was still living at home, and legally an orphan since I was under 21 and had to have a guardian for 2 years. I even had to give up my dog. It all messed me up pretty badly and I never established a real career, just hopped around from job to job, and never finished college. Sometimes Dad shows up in dreams. I really wish I'd had the benefit of his advice as an adult, like my siblings.
