Missing Dad on Father's Day

(yes, I know the picture is backwards, but that's how the slide was scanned about 10 years ago)

This is one of my favorite pictures of my father - taken in 1968 while he was in Saigon during the Vietnam war. He looks a little tired, a little pensive, but to me he also looks kind. He made mistakes in his life - but he always loved us and was always thinking of us. It's been 9 years since he died, and I still find myself thinking about things I want to tell him and share with him.

Happy Father's Day, Daddy. I wish you were here.
