My father’s skin was quite dark, but it still couldn’t hide the scars on the bridge of his nose and on his brow. He had big eyes with long lashes, but the whites of his eyes were yellow. Acquaintances said he had problem with his liver. They were right.

Let your dad know that you appreciate him

Do you get on well with your father?
