    When I contacted the Newspaper a couple years ago I was looking to send them the original interview. When the editor heard my story he asked me to try to put my story into words. It was a miracle that it came out as well as it did. Thank you all very much,

    Thank you, Dutchman. That is indeed one heck of a story. Your father sounds to have been a pretty decent guy and I'm glad you're willing to share his observations from that day.
