About the Author: Joseph G. Bonannois a Boston area business Attorney.I'll Watch You Like A Hawk is his firstnon-legal publication, which took over 3 years to complete. The purpose ofwriting of this book was twofold. First, recounting all of the stressfulmemories and writing them down were important so that others who are goingthrough similar medical crises in their lives will know that they are not aloneand could look somewhere for a comforting of their heart wrenching emotionsthat everyone endures as a family member suffers from a catastrophic illness.The second was to preserve this accounting for Mr. Bonanno'schildren, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.¿ Stories such as this could never be recalledverbally in great detail, so the only way to memorialize these details was towrite them down.
