Have you ever lost a girlfriend, see her years later and wondered what happened to her? Why has she let herself go? I had the same feeling yesterday when I took a road trip back to the house I grew up in outside of Ava, Mo. It looks like there hasn't been any work done on the house since we left it in 1971. I was sad..

My dad rebuilt that house with his bare hands...he's spinning in his grave.

I'm sad with you, Dad would be heart broken...

I know this feeling well. My former home in Eugene, MO - sits abandoned, windows broken, overgrown weeds... looks as if a small fire broke out and no one bothered/loved the place enough to work on it/fix it.
