The First Time he Said Goodbye



This was taken of Dad and me the night before he left to fight in Korea. The label says it was in August, 1951.

It looks like a Norman Rockwell!

I agree; it does look like a Norman Rockwell. What a beautiful memory.

Fr. Gregory took the words write out of my mouth. That is a wonderful, wonderful picture - especially the title you gave it.

I am highly impressed by that photo. It DOES look like a Rockwell. Was it originally on Kodachrome? It looks like a Kodachrome.

I thought it looked like a Rockwell too. Such a beautiful memory for sure. Reminds me of when my dad went to Bosnia - the first time he had ever been deployed any where (certainly not the last).
