1. Where it all started
My mom's name is Jo-Ann. She met her love at 16. Just like the boy next door. His name was Thomas. The ended up getting married and having 3 boys. Tom, Nick, and Chris. Each 2 years apart. There dad was a great chef. He had passed away from cancer at a very young age. And the boys were very young to have such a tragic death. My mom began to drink her feelings away. She just was never the same. But then she met a man named Mike. Then I came along. Mike was a good guy. My mom had loved him at one point. But then things just became bad very bad.
