I was born, as many of us were, a very young child. The hospital was in Connecticut , and so were my parents, which made it convenient. Until the age of 7, I grew up in a small Massachusetts town called Middleboro. I had a better than average childhood with very little money. I spent days playing with my friends, picking berries, and generally finding mischief wherever I could. Only once were the police involved.
I met Evelyn at a time when my life was at a crossroads. Her love saved my life and gave me hope.
