Our dad, when he was young.
A note on the front seems to say "40",
so I'm guessing this picture,
and mom's at right, are from 1940.
Our mom, when she was young.
No date on the picture.
I don't remember ever seeing her
looking like this!
Our father's headstone.
He was buried in a military cemetery.
Headstones don't hold enough words
to help remember a person.
I hope this website can help with that.
Maureen took this picture.
Our mother's headstone.
She was buried in a Catholic cemetery,
as she requested. The priest who read
the eulogy was her friend and knew her well.
Tim took this picture.
I don't know where dad's wedding ring is.
I think I saw it in mom's "precious stuff"
box that Tim still has. She had dad's
"dog tag" from his WW II days in there.
She kept it all these years.
I have it now, and cherish it.
Here are mom's wedding rings.
I have them with me.
They're worn almost completely through.
I believe she wore them every day
of her life after they got married.
Mom still wore them after dad was gone.
She was wearing them when she died.
