In 1973, after college graduation, your dad invited a list kid to live in your home in South Berwick. Had no where else to go. Spent lots of time with Chad, reading to him. You kept a lot to yourself but once wrote a school report called "Posh the Ghost" Your mom was very proud of it.

The kindness of your mom and dad helped me get some fresh air and regain my bearings. Such kindness.

Wow - amazing how an act of kindness can reverberate through the decades and still have the power to move us. For a long time it was a mystery to me why this gentle young man one day began sleeping on the couch in the living room. Tuns out it was just plain human compassion.
