“Mama lioness looked at me deeply and said affection was a good thing and don’t let others embarrass me for being naturally affectionate,” he continued. “My fellow classmates told me, laughed at me, told me affection was a stupid thing, a make fun of thing. I was angry at my mama for putting me in that situation, a situation that made me feel more weird than I already did.
“She held me and told me softly that affection was a good thing and one day I may understand or not but I should always remember I was her affectionate cub,” He concludes the post.
Vogelsang shared Nick, Christopher and brother Marc with August Coppola. The pair married in 1960 and were divorced by 1972.
