  “Is Dick home?”  My neighbor’s eight year old grandson was back for one of his visits…and looking for my ex-boyfriend. “We discussed this last time, Noah.  Dick doesn’t live here anymore.” “Why?” Why had been Noah’s favorite word for the last three years.  I finally had to admit, Noah was a little “special”.
