This is a photo of my dad taken in 1938. I always thought the saddness captured what must have been difficult times during the depression – or maybe it was just from being forced to wear that outfit. He was born in Coplay, PA and moved to Queens, NY in 1940. After getting out of the Navy he married my mom. I have 2 older sisters. He showed me how to live with strength and courage. He passed away in 1978 when I was 19. This is a tribute to all those who have left us way to soon.
