This intro is unnecessary for those closest to me, but those others of you who have read Whit's blog may remember "Tiny," his only true friend at Terre Haute. His name is Gerald Duggan, and he was released a couple of years ago. In the meantime Gerry has become a close friend to me and a good friend to others in Cincinnati and elsewhere who have gotten to know him in the aftermath of Whit's passing. Following his Associate's degree from Sinclair Community College last spring, Gerry has just received certification from the OCDP board as a Chemical Dependency Counselor Assistant. He's currently working on his Bachelor's degree. I can't tell you how proud I am of Gerry. I know Whit is smiling too.
