Subject: IN MEMORIAM , on what would have been my Dad's 100th Birthday

Like it says on the header this would have been my Dad's 100th Birthday , he's been gone a long time , but not forgotten . They say that as long as somebody remembers your name you never truly die .

The two things that I admired most about my Dad was that he was a member of the US NAVY , during WW II . And that he was a long haul Trucker for over sixteen years . Back in the days of the Iron Men . NO AC , power steering , just sheer guts , and true grit .

We never truly got along , and we never even had the chance to say good-bye . That's the way it goes sometimes , you think that there will be a little more time to do the right thing , and too often there isn't ..................

Kinda of a weird thing about my Family History though ,and that's when we were born :

My Mom : 1914 , start of WW I

My Dad : 1917 , US enters WW I

Me : 1950 , four months later the Korean War broke out

And even my Wife has joined the " club " . She was born in 1962 , which was the start of the big buildup of the US in what would become THE NAM .

Anybody else have have any like that going on in their Families History ?
