TLC?Tender loving care, remember?Tender loving care aboutthose in hospitals, nursing homes, mental facilities, schools, disconnected families, underprivileged children, an abandoned spouse,and all we who face our limitations and dont know where to turn?A Nigerian proverb says, Not to know is bad.Not to want to know is worse. Not to hope is unthinkable. Not to care is unforgiveable.

Let me tell you about Pete, my Dad, so that you may know him. I wrote this book feeling that maybe you would want to know about this mental patient who spent forty-seven years in confinement.His life seemed worthless, of no value to society.After his death at eighty-seven, I thought again, this time with hope that there was a way to redeem his existence.

FOR PETES SAKE helps youto become aware of mental health issues in our ordinary circumstances.From my g-g-grandparents conception, through our childhood and schooling in rural Sullivan County, Indiana, through the State hospital and nursing home experiences of Pete, through the triumph of my Mom, through questions of faith, purpose, and meaning, we learned to hope and care.

Meet PETE as Rip Van Winkle II and learn, hope, and care about the mentally ill and their families.
