My NT sister and I lost our dad when we were young. He passed the day after I turned 12 at the age of 43.

Had he managed to get through his treatments without any problems, he would be 65 this year.

We love you and miss you, Dad! :cry: :cry:

Yes, A Happy Fathers day to all who maybe Fathers today.
Dad .. would be 119 yrs old today. Thats where I recieved most of my education from.Bless his Soul He made it to 1986
Got see to things that some people would have never imagined...Early days of flight,and of the Automobile.
Moon Landing , Many children. 2 wives . Developed Early uses of electronic wireless remote control in Warfare.When the USA started to develop that. Worked with Disney in development of some of the special effects people enjoy at the amusement people enjoy. Was a imagineer, for before they called them that.Contracted to Locheed Aircraft in WW2.
He saw the effects of WW1 and WW2, great depression, and all that stuff,bread lines. Would be quite a long post
If I was to try to list the things he did . It would take several lifetimes just to start to learn what he knew and write about his doings.
And am not priviledged enough to know of 1/2 of what he knew . He was quite a old Father .But I was Priviledged to know him. And his care that preserved me through my early life, :heart:
