I've been away because my father died last Friday. This is one of my favorite images of him from his days in the Navy. He was receiving a commendation for being sailor of the month back in 1964 and we never knew about it. My husband found the letter in the back of the frame holding this image as he was readying it for the memorial service. I will miss my dad deeply and feel as if the entire universe has shifted now that he's gone.
