Cheryl, thank you for the vote of confidence. Everyone’s input is percolating around my brain while I’m working the day job.
My dad was a firefighter in the 50’s and ran what the called “the meat wagon.” I know that this phrase isn’t PC, so please don’t be offended by the terminology. But his nightmares were very real and he ended up managing his emotions by being so stoic that nobody could reach the man inside. I’m happy that your dad got help.
My hero deserves a HEA even though he doesn’t believe he does. I have him down to a gnat’s @$$. My heroine 🤷♀️
