SURPRISE!!

I hope this woman has the good sense to leave this man alone. She owes him nothing and will only open old wounds if she looks him up.

Agree. She can get nothing but emotional pain and future burdens from making contact with him after all this time. He had a partial college education so one must assume he had issues or he would never abandoned his family and lived a homeless existance. If mental illness was only a small part of the reason he had been homeless so long, then suffice it to say it will certainly be worse now!

I agree. This woman lived most of her life (she's 44, he left when she was 2), without him. He had no interest in her. He abandoned the family for reasons known only to himself.

In our own families contacts were made with the walkaway and it exploded in people's faces. The leaver didn't want to be contacted. Discussion became accusations. Shouting led to pushing, then assaults. People got arrested with a couple doing a little time and not one question was answered. Some dogs are better left sleeping.

What a drag to find out that your deadbeat father came to such an untimely end.

Glad the stepdad was able to step up to the plate to provide a normal life for his daughter.

I somehow doubt he could even face her after everything that has transpired.

She also has something in common with the cannibal. They both have her father's nose.

He's not dead. He's in the hospital. He was attacked and the animal that attacked him is dead.
