At the urging of our middle daughter, Jennifer, I am writing this sketchy history of my life. She always told me that she thought I was a great dad and an ideal husband. I never thought that I was anything special, but was just doing what a man was supposed to do.
There were no guide books for being a child, none for being a husband and none of the children came with a book of instructions. So if anyone gains any useful information from my story, I will be pleased beyond any expectations.
