“I believe he tried to tell my mother before that,” says the author.
“I saw this psychiatrist, and the doctor said I’m a latent gay,” he explained.
‘Oh, that psychiatrist should never have told you that,’ says the patient.

Shannon said he died around six months later, at the age of 72.
“I just questioned him by the pool one day, ‘Have you ever considered you could be gay?'” she explained. “And he just said, ‘Most sure,'” says the narrator.
“He did his utmost to raise us, and after the automobile accident, he had to learn to walk again with braces on his legs, so I admired him,” Molly Shannon said.
“He put in a lot of effort… He was so ashamed of himself.”
