STATEMENT OF INTENT

For almost twenty-five years I have held onto this story for fear of hurting those whom I love, respect, and honor.  That however, is not my intention.  This series is not to cast blame, point fingers or to cry out as a victim: nor is it an opportunity to “air the families dirty laundry”.  NeitherRead More
