This reminds me of a boy named Quentin and his dad with whom
I am acquainted in Florida. I 've known them at a winter resort there.
He is now about 14 or 15. I met them when he was about 6.
I 've sent him money for Christmas and for his birthday in August.
He was raised only by his dad, who is a very pleasant man who has run
a small business cleaning swimming pools. His mother was not around
because she was in prison for anti-drug law violations. I was told that
she was eventually released from prison and had a meeting with Quentin
when he was about 13. I asked him how he felt about meeting her.
He seemed almost coldly indifferent to her (which surprized me)
as he mentioned that meeting. In contrast, he LOVES
his dad dearly
, even when he is being punished for his juvenile indiscretions.
Apparently, his mother has very little interest,
or no interest, in having an on-going relationship with Quentin.
From conversation with him, I see that he sincerely does not care.
Accordingly, I suspect that u stand much higher
and much closer
in Mo 's confidence and affections than anyone else, Boomer.
