I was never caught dressing while growing up and outside of my wife I was still deeply closeted by the time my Mom passed. Nevertheless I do believe she at least knew in her heart that I was different from all my other brothers in a gentler, more sensitive way. So I don’t think it would have been a terrible surprise to her and most likely she would have been very supportive and that belief makes me very happy today. I’m very interested in how my sibling sisters will react when I come out to them which I am planning to do in the not too distant future. I have an inkling that their reactions will be the same or similar to what my Mom’s may have been.
