It was never very easy for those three little boys. Mom and Dad were locked in a cycle of anger, abuse and neglect. As the years went by, the family slowly dissolved. Yet through it all, the three brothers stuck together. They had each other.
As they grew, each devised a different plan of escape. Bud, the eldest, was the first to leave. He joined the Air Force and never looked back. Eventually, he found his way to Colorado. Bobby, the youngest, became lost in alcohol and hid it behind his sense of humor and magnetic personality. Bobby died very young.
