Flashback Friday

String...aka Maurice, my father. Look at the length of those legs! He was born in 1920 and grew to be 6'5. I imagine that these high school years were when he had a lot of that growth. He was always slim and had trouble finding clothes and shoes. I am told that his mother was 6' which is a remarkable height for a woman of those days. He had that same beautiful penmanship until his death at 53 of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).

Maureen ... what a nice photo of your father ... he certainly looks like a fabulous basketball player. Isn't it wonderful to be able to look at these old photos and think of what our parents lives were like in "those days"?

I am so sorry that he died at such a young age and from such a cruel disease. I know you must still grieve for him.
