After reading this and moving on, as I looked back at it, the feeling came that maybe the father was feeling so much pain he couldn't bear to be around the children and be reminded of what he has lost. I don't know - just guessing, but it is a possibility to consider. My own son went through incredible pain for some time when his wife left him and took the children, so I know what it is like for a father. The opposite may be true too. be patient and thoughtful with him as you talk together, and maybe that will brin him back.
