My only regrets are the loss of my twins and my first son. By , Burke had "three kids on the outside, and about four at home",  including Eleanor A. Your love and your strength, and the love of your mothers, have made me the strongest-minded father in the world.
I may not be the best father. Maybe I haven't done everything that I should do, could do, or would do…or desire to do, but by the grace of God, and your prayers, we will make it. Every day is a new way. None of us are perfect and God knows, I have made many mistakes. Burke admitted serial infidelity during his marriages: "I was young.
Girls were coming from every angle. I couldn't love them all. But I tried. I realized too that maybe the reason I had problems with my marriages was because I didn't spend enough time with my children, my family.
I thought that sending money home and buying pretty cars and redoing houses, and ordering food by the hundreds of dollars a day, would keep my family together, keep my children happy Not being there all the time, being on the road days out of the year, was too much.

I guess God let me develop into what I am now and allowed me to live. It's not an eating disorder. If I had an eating disorder, I wouldn't travel. I love to eat and I love to cook—as you can see. And that's a lot. But it's NOT! God knows I've enjoyed every kind of food there is, all around the world. It's not like I'm going to miss any of it.
Because I've had it all!
