I do remember your stories about making and shoeing horses, test driving the Harleys when you worked there and you and Dad's stories about driving trucks for the City of Milwaukee. You taught me how to fish, about hunting and even gave me my first shotgun. I remember when you and Grandma dropped me off at N.A.T.T.C. Memphis, Tennessee, my first duty station in the Navy, on your way to Florida for the winter. Later, I enjoyed watching you being the same way with my children. I will always remember our last visit.
