His dad and his dad’s sister were the only two children in their family. The sister died at a very young age. His dad had one child. His mom and dad are gone and as far as he knows he has no family anywhere. We spoke for quite awhile. He said from time to time he experiences sadness, due to not having any family.
He added that not having family had led him to work hard at any relationships he does have.
Speaking with this man gave me a deeper appreciation for my family.
