Happy Memorial Day! Remembering my wonderfully sweet Father who has been gone for four years now. He enlisted in the Navy when he was just 17. He had graduated from high school at 17. His parents had to sign the permission slip. Now that our son just turned 17, I've been reflecting on my Grandmother's decision and how difficult that decision must have been. It was the last year of WWII. My Dad would be 83 now. I am thankful that he was not involved in any combat. He spent four years on a Navy ship. He always told us that it ruined travel for him. He was very happy staying home and was without a doubt, the kindness man I've known.
