  1. This is a lovely Memorial weekend tribute. One can tell at a glance that he was a distinguished man whose life was marked by achievement.

    1. Thank you, Hilary. I guess I never thought of him as looking distinguished, but Willy Dunne Wooters, who served in the Air Force, seemed quite impressed by the photo of Daddy.
