    Thanks for the memory of your Dad, Bob. He shared a lot in common with mine, who was born a year later than yours and passed away in 2003. He sailed gasoline tankers in WWII, in the engine rooms. It was dangerous duty. He was also a union man, dedicated to providing for his family, and a great Father. I never realized what a huge impact he had on my life until I was pushing 50. Now I reflect on his quiet example nearly every day.
    Whenever I would call him, the first thing he’d say is “Are you working?” The memory still makes me smile.
    Happy Fathers Day, Dads. We’ll always love you.
