Bill, Thanks for the good wishes. Despite our reluctance to go to our father's house while members of his wife's family were there, our niece did go there and was given the opportunity to go through our father's personal things. While those things of monetary value were withheld, those that would mean something to my brother and I were given to us.My father was a policeman during World War II and we have pictures of him clowning with his friends, displaying his new Sargent's stripes, displaying hs new Lieutenant's badge and of he an I on his TV program called "Information Police". We have his marksman medals. My brother has his Retired badge and I have his hat that I remember him wearing.We have memories of him building two apartments above four garages with the help of his policeman and fireman friends. We recall that he was instrumental in setting up the Police Acadamy in San Diego and that he taught Police Sciences at two Junior Colleges there. We have the hole in one trophy from the La Jolla Country Club Golf Course that he earned while he ran that substation that now does not exist. We remember the summer camping trips into the redwoods and now live in the redwoods ourselves... We have the wonderful memory of years of confidences and emails and the last three weeks of his life when we were all together with him in a very intimate time. These are our real legacy...who we are and who he was...Thanks for bringing this to mind again...Anne
