Re: Dennis Hooker Passes Away
I admired Dennis so much. I often tell some stories of his early childhood when doing consultation with psych folks who believe that the past is one's destiny. If that were so, Dennis would have grown up to have been a terrifying man, because he had, in many ways, a tragic, heartbreaking childhood. Instead, he grew up to be a splendid man, gentle and strong. He proved that the heart makes its own choices, and despite what one may have suffered, the heart can choose good.
