Jean O'Connell's memos
My Mother, Jean O'Connell, and I were seperated from each other by the accountant's policy of secrecy, leaving each of us dependent on what the accountants tell us. Behind this invisible wall Mother is led to believe that I am the problem and I am led to believe that Mother is the problem. I believed Mother was the problem until I found her memos of the accountants instructions to her in her papers after her death. If she had not written the memos, and if the memos had not survived, I would still believe that she was the problem. Mother died believing I was the problem. Secrecy is fatal.
