  • DAD AT 90

Photo license: © All rights reserved

[Arlington National Cemetery, 2004; Key West NAS, 1949]

Today, November 2, would have been my father's 90th birthday.

I can hardly believe the passage of time. In my memory, he is always young.

I never knew a better man. Ever.

As always, thank you for stopping by this page.
