I was reflecting this Veterans’ Day, and thought about John. He was a good man, and I realized that I actually on very close personal terms with a World War I veteran. By the way, there is, from what I have been able to find, only ONE American World War I veteran still breathing, and he is 108 years old.
John did not live that long. He had a hard life. He was also the most kind, most tender, and most loving man for kids that I have even known. Please follow me on a very emotional track here.
