This Sunday is Father’s Day, so for Throwback Thursday, here’s a photo of my own father, from Easter 1943, when he had just turned four years old. Before the end of that year, his own father would be called up to fight in World War II. This one always surprises me a bit, in the way that family photos so often do, because when I look at it I can see my sister Karen in his face. That seems strange because she really does look a lot more like our mom, as I do. But something about his face makes me think of her.
Happy Father’s Day!
