They both happened in the cold of winter, the first part of February, my father on February 4, 1965, and my son on February 1, 2003. My father, Marden, was ready to turn 69 on Feb. 9th, and my son, Chris, had turned 46 on Jan.25. Thanks, zgirl, for the picture of Chris:
The only electronic copy I have of a picture of my father is the one of him in the Westford Academy class of 1913 where he has three girls to the left of him and three to the right. He’s standing at the top of the Academy steps in that class of seven.
I lit a candle in church on Sunday for my father because it was Feb. 4, but sad to say I forgot about Chris who had died three days earlier 38 years later. Both had heart attacks.
