My dad died on December 18, 1973, just before my 20th birthday. He was 45 years old. I wrote this essay for a college English class some 10 years later; the assignment was to write a character analysis, or some such thing.

|Dad with his 3 daughters - I'm on the right. My sisters|
said I was adopted because I didn't look like them.
But...hah!...everyone said I looked like my dad!
|The whole family|
