In our second half its Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels
Frank Shaw is a practicing trial attorney, a husband, dad of 7 sons, and a recovering alcoholic. Frank writes of his life and experiences in “Signals of Transcendence” in the hope that some part of the story will help, encourage, support others going through something similar. One other big part of Frank’s story is the death of his son Fletcher, just 20. Fletcher was in recovery from drug abuse. This is a story repeated much to often as we hear. Hopefully this encourages more conversations in families.
