Their long-simmering conflict burst into the open, fracturing an already battered family. But in the final days of Don Conroy's life, the Santini who had freely doled out physical abuse to his wife and children refocused his ire on those who had turned on Pat over the years. A poignant lesson on how the ties of blood can both strangle and offer succor. 600 1 0 |a Conroy, Pat. |= ^A22527 600 1 0 |a Conroy, Donald Patrick, senior. |?
