Mom and Dad as a young couple and Dad as a new father. Obviously neither he, nor Mom as the picture taker, were getting much sleep!

Dad loved being around his nine grandchildren. This picture of Dad and my daughter Rachel reminds me of his story about her leading him by the hand at this age on daily tours of the beach house in the Outer Banks. She would ultimately leave mid-tour, saying “Be right back Granddaddy”, with good intentions of returning. Chuckling, he would say “She never came back”.
