It all began in 1958 when I was ten. A young family had just moved into the neighborhood. One sunny summer day while I was sitting on the steps to my house, a young boy came up to me and rolled his ball to my feet. With the sun in my face I said hi and rolled it back. He ran off. A few days later he did it again. I eventually became friends with him. I told my mom that a Chinese family had moved into the neighborhood and their son, Charlie, was my new friend. She said, bring him over for supper. I did and after supper he left and my mom told me a story about people who have something called "Mongoloidism," now Down Syndrome. I became his mentor to protect him from the bullies and I got beat up more than he did. He suddenly left and I vowed that I would do something in my life that would change that bullying attitude. This book is about the sixty years since that time where I made good on my vows. It is a group of chapters that comprise the ah ha moments in my journey as a caregiver all over the world. I hope you enjoy and are enlightened by my story.

Set in the period 1944-1946, If I Should Die Before I Wake is the story of Freddie Osborne and his slow awakening to his attraction to other males. This dawning awareness is troubling to Freddie, whose father shows his disappointment at his son's "sissy" ways. Unfortunately, his mother, who is loving and supportive, dies when he is eleven, but not before encouraging him to join the local Methodist Church. Upon reading the Bible, he discovers that his attraction to other males is an "abomination." Although his father's attitude becomes more supportive after his wife's death, Freddie becomes convinced he is a "sinner" and that he will therefore do bad things to other people. He confesses his "sins" to his father, and his grandmother suggests he see a psychiatrist. This man prescribes electroshock therapy, but when Freddie discovers that the procedure has failed to alter his urges, he becomes certain that finding a "cure" is hopeless.
