I remember wearing his long wool coat to trudge across campus during the eternal winters at Taylor. I wonder if he knew what it meant for me to wear that coat, knowing it had kept him warm in his Army days? I remember seeing his uniform in the hall closet and wondering, but never knowing what or how to ask questions about it.
Now, I'm just thankful for memories, the things he did share, the sacrifices he made for my country, and the love he gave me.
Thank you, Dad. <3
