I would like to say that my parents were never divorced, and although a
report to the news media
depicting him as an alcoholic in his later years, there never was any foundation
to that story. It was originally printed in one of the "grocery
store" tabloids, which should have been enough in itself, to see it as
gossip, yet the national papers picked up the articles as the gospel
truth. In truth, my parents were having problems with their marriage, my dad did
take several weeks away, as a solo vacation, (if you knew my mother, you
would definitely have taken several), but NEVER moved out, and did return
until his death. It was during this time that my mom leaked the
"alcoholic" story, to try and discredit him, if he had wanted to stay gone. But
nothing ever really takes away the soiled image....
