I am kind like my father.

I had wonderful parents. They were pretty old to start a family, my Dad was 50 and my Mom was 33 when I was born. They were financially secure and mature and they wanted to be parents. I moved away after college but flew home 2 - 3 times a year. I feel a lot of guilt for not taking a leave of absence to help my Mom care for my Dad. He died when he was 96.

Nice, yes. Cold... that too.

My parents were older and I was an only child. They were wonderful to me and pretty much everyone else, although my mother avoided gossipy nasty people like the plague. After they both died, I found out how generous they had been to various families who fell on hard times.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give mine a C-.
