As I think of daddy today it is not his uniform I want to post. That part was never emphasized. This was the dad I knew. In love with nature, even while stationed in the Philippines. Taking the canoes through beautiful and treacherous spots. Talking with the beaver. Always looking for the hawk or eagle. Teaching us how to not get lost and if we did what to eat, how to mark a trail and the best rule always walk downstream. Last night the Luna moth visited our door and I think of collecting bugs or the night he woke us all to watch the aurora borealis a rare treat. Thanks daddy for teaching us people are people and for the love of creation.
