My name is Jennifer. I never knew my father, or even much about him. I had one picture that my mother had, which has since been lost.
I know that his name was John Rathbun. I know that he died of prostrate cancer in California in the late 80s or early 90s. I know that he lived in Hawaii (possibly for a very short time) in the very late 70s to very early 80s, and while he was there he spent about a year dating my mother, whose name is Cynthia Haworth. I believe he had a wife and son who would be in his mid to late 20s by now.
I recently had a son of my own, and while I have always had a burning need to know my father (if only indirectly), I find that with my son the need is almost consuming. I am desperate to be able to speak to his family, friends, widow and son, or anyone who could tell me even the smallest things about the man who made me and then left.
If anyone could help me I would be so grateful.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
