He lost our mom 3 years ago( they were married for almost 51 years when she passed.) He has always been opinionated, likes to be the center of attention, His daughter in law is 28 years of age with two of his grandchildren (4 & 3 years of age). She can't do anything right! He has pissed off her mother, brother and father with his comments. Dad thinks everyone should drop everything and do what HE says or wants done! Dad is a Vietnam Vet: worked several years for the Tx, prison system; and retired from Travis County Sheriff Office. I don't want the family to alienate him due to all of us live 1 hr. away. and since he owns a gun now; im not sure what he would do if he's cut off from the family. His parents wasn't very much in our lives due to he HATED TX; they were from upstate New York.
