This is a picture of my grandfather John Robert Rawson (my mom's dad).
He was an Air Force fighter pilot in World War II.
Today I am wishing my Grandfather was still alive.
Today I am wishing he could know my kids, and they know him.
Today I am wishing I remembered all the details of when he told about
making a crash landing in shark infested waters.
Today I am wishing that as a child I wasn't so intimidated by him.
Today I am wishing I had more memories of him.
(P.S. Since Sunday Dean has been wishing he could do it all over.
Never marry, become an Air Force pilot, and live it up somewhere in the Caribbean.)
