Saturday 4th February
Happy birthday to my father
A life well-lived and so fast-paced
He would be eighty five today
Always fun, never straight-laced.
And on World Cancer Day…………
My father ~ Pancreatic Cancer
My son ~ Testicular Cancer
Me ~ Metastatic Malignant Melanoma
Missing you my Angel father Hank
Missing you my Angel son Frank.
4.2.1932 – 5.10.2009
Remembering when we were in Scotland and HRH Prince Charles was taken on a two hour, supersonic flying sortie with Hank in a Phantom fighter-bomber. The flight included an air-to-air refuelling exercise with a Victor tanker, taking on 1200 gallons of fuel. They flew as high as 40,000 feet and as low as 1000 feet, making a pass over Balmoral, (reported at the time, as an ‘extrovert flourish’).
