I go by the name Jim but my real name is Jamal Lubbad. The man in the far right of this old photograph is my father Mahmoud Lubbad. He was a Palestinian refugee. 

My father died in 1972. He had an open heart surgery and died shortly after the surgery. He was 32 years old and left four children and a widow behind. 

Our lives were a struggle after my father passed. My mother is Virginia (Ginny) and she remarried 5 years later. 

I have two brothers and two sisters and I am a  middle child and an Eldest son.
