Dear Annie:

I recently discovered that the man I called Dad all my life was not my biological father, after he passed away last year. “Jack” always treated me the same as his other children, with kindness and love. I will always think of him as my father and have no desire to know who my biological father is.

He loved my children, and they were extremely lucky to have him in their lives. I am not sure whether I should tell them the truth, because he was such a wonderful part of their lives.

Saturday, Nov. 4, marked my 74th birthday. One of my problems is that I still think of myself as being 17, which my wife often observes is older than my behavior. Many relatives have passed away including parents, all aunts and uncles and several of my first cousins. In that we are in the 53rd year of our marriage, Carolyn’s family is also mine. Except for my mother-in-law and one aunt by marriage, all of the family I inherited from Carolyn is also gone. As in all families, out of time and order, we have also lost nieces and nephews.

My patio is full of pots along the sides just choked full of different herbs. Hey, they are so easy to grow. And it is such a supreme treat, a real richness in life, to be able to walk out the door and clip an ingredient for a meal … truly better than a million bucks. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration.
