How do you mourn a parent that was never there? A parent that you never met?

An Instagram user, Isabel Oscar, writes a heart breaking letter to her late absent father whom she never met.

She wrote,

I got this very funny and extremely painful news on 21st November 2016. I have only wished and anticipated the day we both will have our first meeting. I thought to my self would you be on your kneels begging?, would your eyes be filled with tears and regrets?, would you have a good reason for doing what you did?, would you say sorry and mean it? Would I believe and forgive you? These questions and expectations came crushing before my eyes! You left without a reason, who is going to answer the questions I have installed for you all these years? The funny thing is I have no idea how you look like (except your wedding pictures to my mum and your voice over the phone d last time we spoke 7years ago!) Yet you left without even saying GOODBYE!!! I tried so hard to say goodbye and be by your side when you were laid to rest yesterday but for some reason I culdnt (though you don't deserve it) my only wish is I don't end up with a man like you!! At this point, I would wish you DONT RIP but I rather not because I believe you wuldnt have died if you had the choice! RIP FATHER! RIP to the father I never met! I love and still appreciate you for the gift of life! Goodbye till we meet again Mr Oscar Ekwochi.💔👎🏽
