Thanks a lot. My father was inconsiderate enough to die at age 31 so my brother and I were raised fatherless.

IN QB’s defense, I think there is a big difference between orphaned kids and abandoned kids.
The orphaned kids know, deep down and truly, that their father did not want to leave them. The abandoned know their dad just did not care.
I am sure that made a difference in your life.

You and I both know we’re talking about sperm donors, not fathers who were a part of the family and died prematurely. I’ll bet even though he passed on way, way too early, you know more about him than a lot of kids from intact families know about their fathers. To wit:
1/ My wife’s dad died of cancer when she was 15. Mom never remarried - her dad - a ham radio operator, workshop craftsman, and brilliant electrical engineer affected who she married - me - and what she is interested in (she retired this year as a B-747 captain, and is an extra class ham).
2/ My son was dating a gal for a time who lost her Army test pilot dad in an aircraft accident before she was born. She knows everything about her dad - what flew, who his buddies were, what he liked to eat and drink, his hobbies, work habits, etc.
3/ My nephew lost his dad (my brother) at age 9. Same deal. He is convinced that his dad has repeatedly visited him in dreams when he needed advise. My brother must be saying the right stuff - the kid is a senior VP of a bank - making megabucks, and has a wonderful wife and 2 kids.
That’s a hell of a lot different from some welfare baby cannon sow who has spit out 5 kids from 4 different sperm donors.
