thank you Pa

 My father-n-law, KC, also known as Pa, who recently passed, was a Dr. of Chemistry and worked in the Hot Melt Adhesive Division of Dupont, where he retired some years back. He was also an Ensign in the Navy during WWII. He talked to me once about those days, and how many thousands of  US men had died. His ship was in the Pacific heading for Japan, just before "the BOMB" was dropped. He said it was an awful thing, but he was pretty sure if not for the bomb, he would have died too. 
Pa once told me he thought Heaven was on Earth. And, the best discipline/parenting advice he ever gave me was, "if you tell your kids your gonna do something, you better do it." He now joins his lovely wife Adrienne, my husband's mom. For me, the coming together of these two people, represented the beauty of life and the classic-essence of a "groovy couple":) R.I.P.
A huge thank you for his service! Oh yeah, and thanks for the hot glue, Pa <3
