Mary Peluso and Rakel Boisvert
Mary Peluso and Rakel Boisvert

Mary Peluso was, at the time this story took place in the early 1970's, married to her second husband and living in Maryland. She recently told her daughter Rakel Boisvert about Stephen, her son from that marriage and about the day that changed her life — August 31, 1972. This conversation was recorded on that same day 35 years later.
