One thought on “Don DeMorrow Jr.”

  1. Um your facts are greatly flawed. This is my father so you skipped the fact that he tried playing it straight and had a kid named Chris and a wife named Linda. Also hessel completely ghosted me the day my dad died leaving me without both dads. I am proud to say I grew up that way in the Harvey Milk Era with 2 dad’s. Tell the full story if you’re going g to tell it.
