The shock nearly killed my mother. She had been through the deaths of two of her children and had no previous knowledge that her first-born was in such serious trouble. The telegram from my father was short and brutally blunt. It read, ‘‘Gladys died this morning. ’’ Some years later my sister would recount that story to me, and I went numb just thinking of how my mother must have received this news.

She had then lost her first-born daughter at twenty-one, then her second daughter at forty-nine. Now she was losing her fifth child at thirty-nine years old. Shock was long past. Now it was quiet resignation, a void that couldn’t be filled. Jack was still in New York and reported home frequently on the downward spiral of our brother George. He was now in a coma, probably induced because of the pain. I left immediately for New York to visit him, although I knew for certain that he would have no knowledge of my presence.

So it was with my mother. She had met my father at the Saturday night dances in Brooklyn and, while it was coincidental that they had been born and raised only five kilometres apart in Newfoundland, it was even more coincidental that they lived only two streets apart in Brooklyn when they met. He was living on Ninth Street and she on Eleventh Street.
