Daddy's Home




How will you celebrate StoryCorps’ National Day of Listening in November?


I will listen to my father. I've had a very complex relationship with him. We've definitely had our ups and downs but I will always have love for my Papa. It is especially difficult these days to deal with him and be around him. He is a sixty-six year old man who is haunted by a lost love and memories he just can’t seem to shake. I’ve lived with him all twenty-four years of my life. Most of them loving him, some of them having so much hate. In spite of all that anger I carried around I’d never change how he brought me up or what he has taught me. He gave me life and I will dedicate my time documenting the rest of his.

Who will you interview?

My father Merlo Irving Wells & family and friends that know him

time flies so fast my dear..make the most of it.. honor your father the same way you honor your mom..whatever happened in the past is already in the past but you can still do something starting today..not only listening but showing him how thankful you are for all the love and the care he gave you when you're still young.. after all God made him your dad..for a purpose..God bless you..

I know how complicated a father-daughter relationship can be. Can't wait to see the outcome, it should be very interesting.
