The son of an Irish cop… Tough!

It’s difficult to determine my age in maturity, definitely a teenager. I was 42 when we met, I  was Childish, emotionally sensitive, idealistic. Sober.

I was afraid of you even when you approached me to offer help. My need for help was palpable. I was unaware at the time that I was gathering father figures. 

5 years you made yourself available, daily. I remember calling you about a drama, rage from work.  Les said, ” Mind your own business. ” And hung up.

Words to live by. 


Thank you Les.
