Happy Birthday, Dad.
This is the second one without you, and the first one since I started blogging. Sean and I miss you every day. We may even have to have a steak, spinach, and (pistachio) ice cream party for you on one of our future Shangri-La trips.
You earned it, Lieutenant. We love you, and I, for one, miss the influence of the greatest generation. I hope we do you proud, sir.
