I left a comment for you on FB, but this man deserves another accolade from me. I am so sorry that I never got the chance to meet him, although I loved the photos of a past visit plus the tales of your childhood and family. What a wonderful role model and one that would be duplicated by others.

How good that you were able to see him in the past few years. He was a handsome man and he lived a good life.
