Why September 11th Is A Special Day

Dad ProfileWhile the whole world is remembering the tragic attack on our country of a decade ago today, I'll be spending time at a family reunion. One who will be missing, of course, is my dad - George Wayne Brooks.

Today is his birthday and I'll be thinking of him with each conversation that I have. He was born on September 11th, 1914 and would have been 97 today. That would be pushing the "age edge" in my family for sure. But losing him at just 65 years old was much, much too soon.

A tribute revisited.

Happy Birthday 

to you dad!

    Your Pop obviously had a lasting impression on you and I'm sure he would be proud of you for carrying forth his values, his legacy. Thank you for sharing his story with us.
