  • There but for the grace….. William must have been very close to my father’s age, so 11 days before we all remember 100 years since WWI ended, I cannot help but think that bad luck of the draw saw this young man’s life ended, whereas my dad returned from a different part of the world in 1947. It would be good if in time someone related to William will add their thoughts, but mine are just what seeing him remembered related to how grateful I am to him and others who made the ultimate sacrifice. As long as I am here I will join in the nation’s recognition every year.
