My darling dad died nearly three years ago.
I designed this block several years ago as a tribute to him.
This is his junior high school picture. He was 20 years old at the time it was taken.
My dad quit high school after his sophomore year and joined the Navy during WWII. After the war ended, he returned home and then returned to high school because his mother wanted him to finish his education.
He graduated at 21.
