Here is a picture of him with my mom. His Teddy bear is beside his clock, which was a wedding gift to his grandmother.
Here is his monkey, Jocko, alongside a history of the clock, which he wrote in 2001. Do you see him at age three standing beside his Teddy bear, who is riding his tricycle?
Dad was a splendid artist. He was always drawing something, even up to a few months before he died. I wish I had more samples here to show you. Mom has the Amish auction picture he painted hanging in her living room. Her diminished vision makes it hard for her to see, but she says when she looks at it she remembers what is there. I'll try to remember to get a photo of it to share.
