Lost Fathers and Last Journeys

July 21, 2002

I would give a lot to have known the kind of loving closure experienced by the talented Joe Donnelly and his brave father ('Driving Vince Donnelly,' June 16). I was moved to tears by the author's deft prose and obvious respect for his complex, charismatic 'old man.' I lost my alcoholic Irish dad almost 20 years ago, four years before I got sober. What a wonderful, mystical trip the Donnellys shared together. We should all be so lucky.
