Dad died at almost 91. Served in Germany in World War II. All my life heard stories of his childhood and his folks from Yugoslavia and Finland. Born on a boathouse in Aberdeen, Washington back in 1916, tied up to pilings next to railroad tracks, mud sliding on flats at low tide, fishing with handlines, finding body caught in nets, boardwalks, trudging across old bridge to downtown for mother’s work at hotel, etc. Camille and I went to Aberdeen and began walking town, found museum, found records from 1917 telling exactly where boathouse was, old pictures of bridge location, etc. Verified everything Dad told me. Tear jerking experience. One of the best hikes of my life. Roots discovered. Miss my Dad. Good man.
