The most devoted father He would is so sweet He. Had -- Beautiful smile and bright eyes and He truly was my best friends and -- then you write beautifully about that Stephanie in this house sensitive. He was and we should reiterate again there has been no proof whatsoever. Your husband had anything to do with his father's scheme but yet He. He internalized so much and He even changed physically after this didn't He did -- I mean now I look at photos of Marc. Before Bernie confessed his crimes and after and He just looks like a different -- to -- -- found. After Bernie confessed to him in his -- He. Just physically changed He was hunched over alive He -- through -- and beard He wore glasses that He didn't have to you. He was destroyed. And you reached out to -- who was in jail at the time you wrote him a letter -- -- down because you point him I do and noticed him on how to be responsible living room. Thumb along my -- started off actually as a condolence notes and then I -- and then it got very angry and I told him how I felt. And his response was. That He felt you know very bad for himself. A very sort of narcissistic. Response -- -- He felt bad for He felt bad for him. I know you share the thoughts of many He built. So many out of billions of dollars.

And I really wanted to give my children something to read when they're old enough to understand what happened to their dad I want them to be able to -- the truth. Com and that's really why I wrote this book and it's the response has been amazing and it really makes me mismarked even more because he's not here to share. That feedback that I think -- did ask about them. The children yes they ask about him every day. They look at pictures of him every day they dropped pictures for him every day I keep I'm memory book -- I write about in the bucket in the -- remember about.
