I've been going through stuff of his I have... He had his passport, new in 1996, never used. He had customs forms for Mexico because he always wanted to go live there, once he got a little better.

I wish it had turned out better. The infection was just too much for him. His diabetes has kept him poorly the last few years and he just wasn't able to heal against so much at once, even with surgery to replace the destroyed parts, there was just too much overall damage.

I wish I'd spent more time with him. It was only in the last 3 years that I'd been getting along better with him. He was so smart and had so much in his brain that I valued. I wanted him to get to spend more time with Max, and to get to know Khai. I miss him calling me and talking about stuff and finances and construction and all the things he's done.

He was a veteran right? Which branch? Was he in a war? My dad was in WWII, army infantry. He got a Purple Heart for losing a thumbnail when he was jumping into a foxhole. :) He was in Germany at some point. My dad was 64 when he died, not long after having his leg amputated. I still wish I had more time to talk to him. He had great stories. Do you have a favorite story that your dad used to tell you about his life?

He was in the Navy on the USS Oriskany during 1962-1965 as intelligence. I believe this was during the VietNam Conflict, but outside of "the war".

He had too many stories about too many things to have a favorite. :)
