This Is Going To Make It Hard To Reconcile

Creative Greenius

I am the firstborn child of Mary Brigid O’Connor and Stanley Daniel Galliani. I was born in September of 1957. On New Year’s Day 1982 we parted company in anger with my father yelling at me, “Get out! Get out, and don’t come back!”. I told him then, “Don’t say it if you don’t mean it. You know the history of our family!”. To which he replied, “Get the hell out of my house!” And I did. That was 37 1/2 years ago and to be brutally honest I’ve never missed them or felt a desire to reconnect.
