“I’m awful. It’s terrible. Every day, man, it’s better than others… but overall, it’s like, you know, I think, the pain is still there, always, but you just kinda figure it out how to carry it be better it times goes on. But it’s always gonna hurt.
You think that you and your dad had such a close relationship because you had that musical band. I mean, if you could speak your father’s language. That’s the gift in the curse of it. You know, we had such a close connection… and now for the rest of my life – there is no way I’ll never think about him, no matter what I do, which is good – but it also hurts a lot.”
