In memory of Alston Glidden

I was six when my father died from a gun. No one knows if it was murder or suicide. I last saw him when I was three or four. I don’t remember him. It’s hard not to remember anything. I am 74, and it still pains me not to have known him.

He was a veteran of World War II, and I have always wondered about how that experience changed him. The best to everyone who reads this post.
