D-day 6 of June
All of these photo's were taken by me in late October 1999. Mother, daddy and I, my older sister Frances and her husband John, had made a three week trip to Europe in late October and early November of 1999. On this trip we spent a day on Normandy beach. This was a memorable day for me, no longer did I imagine in my mind what my dad had experienced, but I was there standing on the same beach that he had stood on. Dad talked to us about that day so long ago and he remembered things he had forgotten. The look on dad's face as he remembered, and the tears he shed are forever imprinted in my mind. For many American's the 6 of June is just another day, it has been forgotten, for me it is a day of honor and remembrance.
