As his father goes down, he gets more and more involved with his father. My father died two years after he had to retire -- mandatory retirement -- in his early 60s, and it was a terrible blow obviously to him and also to the family.
He was a vital, top-of-his-form man. He was an executive on Wall Street. But because of some ridiculous regulations, he had to go. As a result, our family began to disintegrate along with him.
