Tinker Posted February 24, 2019 Share Posted February 24, 2019 Can't Keep a Good Man Down Somewhere over France, they shot down my true life hero, my Uncle Ray. World War II fighter pilot that day, survived to return to the USA, ninety-five years he hung around. His neck was broken when shot down "was his lucky day", he used to say, married his nurse, found love that would stay, a good life with laughter, work, and play, Dad to two girls, they're still around. A baby when he was shot down, my first memory, he rescued me. He always made me laugh, he would be my counsel, mentor, he guided me. I felt safe when he was around. ~~Judi Van GorderNotes ▼ Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
