‘Joseph- what’s happened ?’
‘Biggest mistake of my life – I emigrated to Australia. Hard to get good work back then in the East End. Wrench to leave my family, we were loyal and yes we were hot tempered. Me and Michael my older brother- Mr Know- It- All, we fell out in a big way, that’s why I left. He actually said ‘Joseph you are now dead to me’.
Nana was the only one on my side, wrote to me always. Nana writes Michael
is dying. I must go to him, beg his forgiveness. Pray God the phone will ring.’
