Struggling With The Truth
There’s no easy way to deal with a parent vanishing from your life, especially at such a young age, let alone when there is no real explanation. While Richard was sensitive enough to send his sons a birthday card here and there, it never made up for what his family had to put up with all those years. While the older brother, Matthew became the family’s rock, Doug, the younger son was having a harder time.
Doug ended up serving many prison sentences and his name was related to drug charges. He became a very angry man and at some point even thought his dad’s disappearance had something to do with him. He did however mention that he forgives his old man, but he still asks himself ‘why’ every single day.
