Growing up on Chenango Dr. On the same street as the Gaffen family I was always interested for Alan. He was trained like a dog to respond to a bell. You could hear the Gaffer dinner bell ring throughout the neighborhood and Alan had to go home. They gardens treated Akan as if he was some kind sub human farm animal. When the boys who lived on Chenango Dr were playing in the street Alan would only play with them on some weekends. If they played during the week he was not aloud to play on school nights.
Myron gave alan chores that were very difficult and not suited for a child his age. Ut, if that was not bad enough Myron would tell at his son so that all could her the abuse as Myron publicly humiliated Alan. Myron Gaffen was the tyrant of Chenango. If Child Protection existed then, they would had removed Alan, as it was not a safe environment to grow up in. I know that Alan grew up in a house of pain and fear.
And if that weren't enough, in school his sister Gerry took over were Myron left off. Gerry humiliated Alan in school all day every day.
I'm supprized that Alan did not become a cereal killer
My mother played mahjong with .ts. Gaffen. Ma told me that if she had a husband like Myron she would of left him years ago. She would cry saying that she was helpless to protect Alan. I hope Mrs. Gaffen finds the peace that she did not have in life, and so richly deserves. Mr Gaffen must had been a monster.
I hope Gerry joins them soon. Myron was a cold father to his son, but Gerry was a total BITCH! Of course evil parents had an evil daughter. Everyone know Joe (Alan) wants nothing to do with them he even changed his name. I'm glad these evil people are dead. 2 out of 3 ain't bad
