I was crying my eyes out reading your beautiful words about your dad (Uncle Corky)! He was so loved in the Snyder family. The similarities between him and my dad were crazy. When I was visiting and talking with him I kept tearing up because I actually felt like I was seeing dad through him.

The hankie thing really got me! Dad always had a hankie too! In the early years always a white one with his suits. Then when he retired he went to the red bandanna’s like the engineers used since he worked for the railroad. I gave one of his bandannas to each grandchild and my brother and I kept one! Mine is tied to my console shift in the car and I have dads memories with me always.

The penmanship is uncanny. I’m sure you recognized Tom’s handwriting as your dads whenever you got mail from him. It’s crazy how it was almost identical. We both had amazing fathers who are reunited now in our Lords Heavenly Kingdom 🙏💜🥰
