About David Praytor Bolton, I

Daddy had blue black hair, dark skin and dark eyes, he was a tall man with large bones and rugged features and cussing was his normal way of talking. He demanded respect and got it. I was 5 years old when Daddy contracted bone cancer, however, I can still remember him going to the doctors (they did not know what was making his right leg hurt so badly), Mama & him leaving in an ambulance going to Charity Hospital in New Orleans for further testing while I stayed with my grandparents, the LeBarons, Aunt Ree and Aunt Catherine, when Aunt Catherine carried me to NO on her vacation to spend time with Mama while she stayed with Daddy, and then when they brought him home setting up his room in our living room. All the people going and coming, bring food, doing things about the house to keep it from falling in on us, and had it not been for the West Monroe Police Department we would not have eaten because we could not get government assistance. I remember it all, even his funeral and the hugh number of people in attendance, but no one shared with me why he was sick, that he was not going to get well or that he had died. I just remember looking into that casket and thinking why is Daddy not looking at me or talking to me, he always did when I stood by his bed, he would not even drink his orange juice until Mama brought me in to drink with him, and what was everybody so sad and crying. I still miss my daddy to this day, but I know where he is and he is waiting on me to get there and we will catch up then.
