In which I read some notes Sly wrote in the middle of the night and they are actually kind of heartbreaking, y'all

Again, we are at the reunion - but this did happen.

Primo handed me three sheets of paper that had almost illegible writing on them.

"These are notes my dad made late at night when he couldn't sleep," he said.

I read them.

I did not like Sly and did not think he was a nice person, but it is very hard not to feel sorry for a sick old man who just wants to go home.

He wrote, over the course of several nights, when he couldn't sleep, and, when, it appears, he was not quite in his rational mind, these things. This was written the week before Doris' funeral.
