write or speak to him now. he is 75. i was wondering what would be the most appropriate way of doing so or if maybe i should just forget it since it has been so long. we didn't get along well when i was a teen. when i was 18 he gave me money for a semester of college. i dropped out and didn't write to tell him til 3 mos later. he didn't write back and that was the end of what relationship we had. i'm a only child. my parents divorced when i was 16. my mother and i have always been close. my father and haven't spoken to each other since i was 16 (i wrote and asked for the money for college after my mother said that he had offered to help with my education). i've always known his address and phone but have only recently seriously considered contacting him,mostly because of our ages, before its too late.
