Patrice Hanson and Tom Snyder were the first outsiders to discuss the sexual abuse of children. Tom and Patrice never met my famous sister, yet, they found themselves in the driver’s seat – thanks to Attorney Sydney Morris – who sold my families literary legacy to outsiders who then committed Art Fraud in regards to Dunken The Frog. Nothing will freeze-up and bring a legacy to a quick ending then the accusation of sexual abuse of children. Tom and Patrice were communicating with each other.
When my aunt Lillian told me Stacey Pierrot sent her a photograph of my sixteen year old daughter taken at the Rosamond Gallery in Carmel, I had to consider that a sixteen year old child was working me – conning me! Heather had no intention of contacting me. She was there because her mother and her aunt Linda wanted my child to make contacts with rich people who would further he career – just because she was Rosamond’s niece. This niece – had no special gifts or talent. Knowing this could be trouble, Snyder and Pierrot suggested they contact me. Did they consult Mark and Vicki Presco?
Above are photographs of David Hanson an his son Malcom, who is the cousin of my grandson, Tyler Hunt. I rescued David and his half-brother, Matt, from their abusive step-father, Randolph DelPiano who is in the Grateful Dead book, he known as ‘Bogus Bobby’ a well known con-artist. Patrice told me David is the son of a Black Panther who died in a Chicago fire. Malcom is named after Malcom X. These two males are topical right now. I have debated for a week about posting these images. But, the story of how I became un-fathered, and how I have struggled to be a father, is a dynamic story that will help many – when told! I considered David and Matt being like my children. But when Patrice told me she was considering going back to The Monster, I threw her out. Did she know she was pregnant?
There is no hope I will ever lay eyes on my newborn granddaughter who Heather entered in a beauty contest….which is to say Patrice did. This Stage Mother lines up all her people when boss found Pierrot’s call. The Hanson sisters demand a blood test – just in case I get wise I am being conned. Does David know what is going on? I would love to hear him tell the truth. My friend Ed Corbin said Heather did not write the letter Patrice sent me. This psychopaths needs me in her corner. She was stalking Rosamond sine I met her. She pretend she has forgotten my name – but not the name ‘Rosamond’.
I am putting Patrice on a collision course with Smoky! I decided to take my ‘Tale of Two Daughters’ out of the trash. These people are in my family tree. I had a step-daughter named Britt who told a judge she would rather live with me, then her father. Her brother attacked Mary Ann, and she I called Britt’s father, he said;
“She had it coming. You’ll find out in time you married a nut!”
I instigated a child custody case. I am having a hard time with the truth most of the women I have bonded with, have bonded with abusive men. My father and Trump are like twins. Children read sexual accusations against POTUS all the time on facebook. Abuse of children is topical. I suffer from child abuse. My autobiography about how my sister and I were abused in every way, was hijacked and handed over to outsiders who exploited Christine and I. Robert Brevoort Buck destroyed a important literary and artistic legacy with the help of Patrice Hanson and her seventeen year old daughter.
“I’m so happy you found out about her now rather than waiting any longer.”
“By September 2000, however, plans were underway for a biography of Decedent, which Petitioner hoped might create interest in her work. The book was published in 2002. Although the book did not spur the hoped-for interest in Decedent’s life and work, efforts continued to market the concept of a screenplay based upon Decedent’s life. Petitioner hoping that this might be brought to fruition, elected to keep the estate open. However, it is the Petitioner’s belief the likelihood of an increased interest in Decedents work is negligible, and the time has come to close the estate.”

My sister suggested that when you come, we get a blood test done to
confirm paternity. I feel 100% certain in myself that you are indeed
Heather’s father. I think you know from your psychic intuitions and
when you see her you will confirm what you already know. However, as
Linda, my sister said, then we’d have confirmation on paper and if
anyone ever challenges it, we can prove it. For example, if Randy
ever shows up although I feel the chances are slim. It’s been 10
years now and we are not that hard to find for anyone who really
wants to. It might be a good idea though. What do you think?
Part of my sister, Linda’s, fears for Heather are connected with the
fact that she (Linda) was molested by relatives on my stepmother’s
side when she was a young teenager. So she has very little trust of men and is very protective toward Heather. I am fairly protective, but I also know I have to trust the Divine Wisdom within her to make wise choices. She does need you now to give her a greater sense of herself and I feel out of
that she will make wiser choices. Knowing she has a dad who loves
her is so important for her right now. It must feel to you like you just had a baby girl. Congratulations dad! I just still feel sad that you were not there Sept. 26, 1984. The night she was born was an experience that I will never forget. I insisted that she stay with me in the hospital at all times and would notlet the nurses take her to the nursery. I just wanted to stay up with her all night and bathe in the feeling of being in love with her that was pervading my being. It was quite extraordinary. She is a very special being. I’m so happy you found out about her now rather than waiting any longer.

I wonder if you can help me. Back in 1983, I met a man in Oakland
named, I believe, Greg. He told me that Rosamond was his sister and
that is the only thing I really know about him as a possible way of locating him. I need to find him for a very important reason. If you happen to know if Rosamond had a brother by this name or any clues that I could follow to locate him, I would appreciate it very much. Thank you for any help you can

Jon, It¡¯s great that its coming together so easily for you to come
here soon. I really trust that this all is in the hands of angels
and that everything that is needed will be provided in terms of where
you can stay, etc. I will try to talk to Diane today. It¡¯s a little odd
living in someone else¡¯s house because I can¡¯t just open the house
to my friends without clearing it and working out an exchange that
works for the owner. But she¡¯s really great and I feel she will understand
and be supportive. Plus she is a great artist and will appreciate another artist and she is very familiar with Rosamond¡¯s work, so I¡¯m sure it will be perfect and a win for everyone.
I thought you should have the number for the phone that goes into
Heather¡¯s room. She has her own line. It is.
I¡¯ve been thinking about the apparent conflict in regard to the
biography. Perhaps there is information I don¡¯t have but it seems to me that a biography written by the brother would be a very different book from a very different perspective than one written by an outsider and so there would be room for the creation of both of them. I know when I am really interested in someone or something, I like to get my hands on as many resources as possible to get information from a variety of points of view. So I don¡¯t see that it needs to be an either/or situation. But, as I said, perhaps there is something I don¡¯t know that you do. We can talk about it more. Tom Snyder seems like a really nice guy also. It seems he is supportive of you and he definitely played an important part in connecting you with Heather and that is important and not to be ignored.
I¡¯m excited too. Maybe not as excited as you and Heather, but pretty
excited. I do look forward to seeing you again. I¡¯m happy this is
all out in the open now. It kind of lifts a weight off me that I wasn¡¯t
really aware of but can notice now how much better it feels that you
know about your daughter.
Love and blessings! Patrice

Why would Randy, a known dead-beat and con artist want to show up out of the blue and challenge anyone for the right to be Heather’s father? Are you suggesting has seen the light, and wants to support Heather in every way including having a judgment against him in a
court of law – MAKING him be the good father he never was? No problem
here, as whenever he wants out he would gladly take a blood-test!
I don’t buy it Patrice. Why would he assume the financial burdens a
sixteen year old girl would bring with legal guardianship. All of a
sudden he had the urge to put Heather through college? Now, who else
would show up wanting PROOF I am Heather’s father.
When I showed the first letter I got from my daughter to my good friend, Ed Corbin, he told me my daughter did not write this letter. Ed has authored a book about Eisenhower, had been an editor at Doubleday, and was a graduate from Harvard. I was dismayed to hear his astute opinion.
“What makes you think so?” I asked.
“A sixteen year old could not have written this. There is evidence of a second party. You daughter only contributed her signature.”
E-mail from Heather Hanson:
I will agree to that if you agree to the following.
a. You will sign a notarized letter stating you will not defame me or anyone I am close to on the Internet or any other form of media. This includes me, Bill, Linda, Flip, my mom, Matt and Katie and Tyler (Internet defamation is illegal and I will not tolerate it)
b. You will remove anything you have published in which you have negated me and others in my life.
c. You apologize for all the horrible things you have said.
d. You get help for what ever condition you have that causes you to be so paranoid, irrational, and abusive.
I trusted you to be in my life. Let you know everything about me and those I am close to and some how, when you get angry, you find a way to twist information and make everyone out to be sick, evil, and abusive. That is not my reality and never has been.

In August of this year, Delpiano again began impersonating Bob Weir.
One of the individuals he bilked, Ken Whitaker, admittedly not a
Deadhead, recalled the experience: “He seemed to know everything
about the Grateful Dead. He told stories for hours and he played the
harmonica extremely well. We didn’t know then that the real Bob Weir
doesn’t play harmonica. He said he was being hounded by the press
over the death of their keyboard player Brent Mydland.” Oakland
police spokesman Sgt. Stanley Bicker was very familiar with
Delpiano’s scam. “Side by side, they don’t look alike, but in their
photos and from a distance, they do,” he said of Weir and Delpiano,
adding, “The really committed Grateful Dead fan knows that Mr.
Delpiano is not Bob Weir.” For the two weeks he stayed in Walnut
Creek, Delpiano made such a splash with the locals that they bought
him dinners and provided sexual favors, and he obliged them by
signing autographs. His scam ended when a friend of Whitaker’s, a
Deadhead, exposed Delpiano as an imposter. Delpiano was ultimately
arrested for failing to report to his parole officer and was
remanded to the state prison to serve out the rest of his five-year
