My Dad – 7 Mar 1914 – 3 Nov 1963

On this sad day 55-years-ago I lost my dad and best friend. Forever with me.

  1. I was. He died on 3 November and I turned 10 on the 22nd. My mom and dad would have been married for 20 years on 6 November. Of course, President Kennedy was killed on my birthday and I was sent home early from school to an empty house to watch the horrible news all by myself. I still miss my dad every day in some way or another and with no brothers or sisters you get to experience all the grief mostly alone.
    Thank you – the Whelan men all kinda look alike 🙂
