There are millions of stories out there, if one just opens the memory banks to the children of today and to the ones coming up. Memories are things that should be shared, not hidden in a drawer or in an old scrapbook that no one sees.
So, Don, you made my day with your message of thanks, and I appreciate you saying so. As this young old man walks the path given to him by God, he will continue to think back in his book of memories those great days of old and even some heartbreaks of life he has had.
If I help you remember yours, then I am truly blessed.
My weekly columns are stored on my website, and my story of our daughter’s last five months on this earth is there too — as are some great links to sports, Kokomo history, and some pictures of Pearl Harbor. I go back once in a while to read them because even this old man has times when he needs to remember.
Yes, there were some tough times back then, but really times are tough these days too.
Life does not stand still. Neither do I.
