My Heritage....


A photo in time.  A memory held deep in her heart.
A soldier far from home with a trusting young woman taken for his bride.
These are my parents, circa 1943.
Their marriage lasted 64 years with the passing of my father six years ago.
She told me, just days ago, that she missed him still.
She was the lucky one, she said, because I had a good man in him.
Their anniversary date comes up soon on March 3rd.
And within days, he would also have celebrated his 92nd birthday.
I miss my dad, and as my grandmother once said, "he was a good lad".
