You were the one who never let go, even after the Old Man was clean out of sight...Maybe that was why!
You knew how much I needed you and you were there - to get me out of the Whore of Babylon's clutches: A blessing I never appreciated til years later. You motivated and encouraged me through the abyssmal hell that was public school. You set an example for me of self-reliance and self-respect! You sacrificed everything the last dozen years of your life to give me a shot at the truth. You would have been 76 today, and I will be glad to see you again at The Return:
I thank God for you Jean Oliver every day, but especially today.
