    CAN YOU BELIEVE... that a psychopath can actually convince a person to write a book over a period of years to fulfill his demented dream. His father, the big "canadian war hero" whos house still remains in Wellandport... Why does that house no longer belong to the son? Did you ask Bill Jones Jr why he no longer resides there?? Did you ask Bill Jr any questions really regarding his past? It may interest you that he does have a criminal record. If this man was such a great person than why did his son become such deceptive, manipulative, unfeeling, unremorseful twisted puppy. This is from a family member thank you.

    Did he mention his children? His 3 children instead of his father all the time. Did he tell you he never paid child support for years, over $200, 000 owed and never paid. Thanks FRO office. - So why dont the profits of his book go to the family, or will it go to the back support he owes? We're going to write a book called The Hero's Son, it will make for very interesting reading, be a sequel to your book, only it will be the true story. Thank you.

    HOW STUPID are you Mrs Arthur?
