Remembrance: But things did get worse . . .

Thank you to all of you who commented or sent me emails with your kind words of support and encouragement. It means a lot to me.

Over the years, I tried to put my parents’ deaths behind me, and put on a smiling face, and be “happy as Larry,” as the saying goes. I didn’t want to dwell on it or burden others with my painful past.

But when true-crime writer Ann Rule published her piece of crap about my parents’ deaths, it reopened that compartment, and I had to do something about it. I also wanted to help others get through similar tragedies in their lives.

Yesterday, I posted excerpts from the book, of how I learned of my father’s allegedly accidental death, ending with:

 “They will be OK. Things can’t get much worse.”

But things did get worse.

Today I am posting another excerpt, which relates to the news I got 24 hours later.

If you’re interested, you can read it at: Dare I Call It Murder? — Chapter 2 excerpt (continued)

I will be posting more date-specific excerpts in the coming days.
