Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my father's 82nd birthday.  He was raised on a farm in rural South Carolina in 1927.  When he was 17 he went into the Navy and several years later transferred to the Air Force.  He retired in 1967 and later worked civil service at the Charleston Naval Shipyard and later in Savannah, Georgia, until he retired for good in December, 1993.  He has spent the last 16 years taking care of my mother and being a father to my son Matthew.  We love you, Dad!!!!!!!!
