How lucky you are to have this account of this part of his life. I only wish I had some "documentation" of my grandparents' lives other than just my memories of them.

I feel very lucky to see a part of his life! I was not only suprised he wrote it, but that it has survived so long. I have a lot of pictures that are very old also. Many were never labeled. I was lucky my grandmother knew at least half of them. I learned in going through all the old pictures to always label your pictures.
