Episode #11 — Dave’s own mother! Karen Hall Simons Finkelston Gummersbach
”I love you.” Three words that Dave’s mom has never spoken in her 80 years. Not to her three kids. Not to her three husbands. In a compelling, and at times painful, conversation, Dave has a heart-to-heart talk with his own mother about a number of life events that shaped her. A sexual assault that produced a child (and that would be Dave himself), a 45-year affliction with rheumatoid arthritis, losing a teenage sister in a train/car collision, a lack of religious faith, and an inability to get close to anyone. Difficult to watch at times, uplifting at others.
