Thank you for sharing that. God Bless your Wife and your family.

This is truly the real stuff in life and all that that entails. My Father was
the Sole Survivor in a bombing of a US Barracks in Cambodia in '69. He was drafted into the Army in '68 after he and my Mom had divorced and he was exposed. I was not close with him a vast majority of our lives. I tear up thinking
about how this colored his life going forth, including him being afraid
of me rejecting him if he had reached out when I was in my 20s. Thank
every entity above that we had Chicken at Wayside Take-Out in '18 with
his little frou frou dog Jacques and my youngest son Zachary. He was
gone a year later in a terrible circumstance in Vermont.
