My dad was a fine and an honorable man and a terrific father. He is greatly missed. My sisters and I love this photo of him, taken by a friend while sailing; it conveys his very essence. Love you Dad.
"For me, my craft is sailing on
Through mists today, clear seas anon.
Whate'er the final harbor be,
T'is good to sail upon the sea!"
