What a sweet boy. I'm holding you and your family in my thoughts today. He looks so young and reminds me of all the boys I graduated with in 1973.

I see such a strong family resemblance between him and you...God bless him and you, for keeping your love for him ever new.

This takes me back to when my young uncle was in Vietnam. He came back physically, but emotionally he remains in Nam. His health was destroyed by the chemicals he encountered. He is suffering, slowing he slips away from us. Very painful. I will keep your brother in my thoughts along with other veterans of that war...there are far too many.

Jane, that picture is about 3 years after the one I posted of my husband in my blog post on Vets Day. He's about a year young than Paul. Amazing so much time has gone by, and he'll forever be young for you.
