Just sat and read all of this story in one go. What a wonderful and well-deserved tribute to your father.

I hope you have come to a time where the pain isn't so sharp anymore and that you are looking back with love and smiles and joy for the wonderful life your father gave you. This was truly one of the best stories I have read in a long time. Thank you so much for sharing this. Your father is one of the best. Your are so fortunate to have had him in your life.

This story has been a wonderful tribute to you dad. You have done such a fantastic job telling the story and annotating it with your own story. I have absolutely loved reading this. You are an excellent writer.

Your dad sounds like he was just a fantastic man. Your stories about him and the rest of your family are awesome.

Some people aren't cut out to be parents. Charlie loved them enough to be both parents to them. I like also how they had a good extended family with the Cullens and Blacks. It might have not been a typical family, but they are close and their is love. Renee will regret doing what she did one day, though. She may just grow old and be lonely because she did not nurture a relationship with her children.

I can see that picture- the dad sleeping with the baby on the floor with the classical music playing softly in the background. High school is a battleground for too many kids, that's for sure.

The storm warnings- LOL. Sure can relate to that! Giving up their baby was probably one of the best things Jasper and Alice could do. They are so young. I can see her wanting to be emancipated as well, since her parents reacted so negatively to her pregnancy, and the Swans were the ones supporting her emotionally as well as physically. I don't understand how parents can disown their kids like that. It happens too often, though.

Some really funny moments in this chapter. Love the name "Skipper."

That does not sound like fun to me! It would definitely be one of those things you do just to say you did it.

It is hard when you have those firsts- that whole first year when every special day is irrevocably altered. Things are never the same after that.

Your pie mistakes! LOL. Sounds like they are all making do. It's nice to see Alice talking to her parents again.

Glad that Bella is going to be fine. What a bummer being on bed rest, though. Loved the sick bell.
| Jaygm chapter 20 . 11/29/2016
That guy was gross. I hope Bella and her baby are okay. How scary!

Locks of love is such a wonderful cause. You are a very admirable person to be doing this - and more than once.

Geez, a crazy lady indeed. Who runs up a $900 phone bill to Brazil? LOL.
