Authors foreword for book:
This is a book that I put together for my Pa It is his story and mostly in his own words. I have enjoyed this project I now have a greater understanding of the incredible life he has lived. He is an amazing man with a great sense of humor and I believe that this really shines through in this book. I love you Pa.
