And now, a word from Doogie…


December 13, 1992… A mother-son relationship has many stages: unconditional love, animosity, rejection, friendship… It’s a lot to go through all in one weekend. Thank you, Doogie. As Jose Amador said in a 14/48 a few years back, “your words fall on my ears like jelly doughnuts.”
