Back down in Raleigh
Dad died very peacefully in his sleep yesterday morning.
I'm still rummaging through the family photographs, but as I drink my coffee this morning and get ready to meet the tide of incoming relatives, this is the one that's really making me smile.
Dad could fix *anything.* In this picture, circa 1973, the engineer on the left is giving the young man on the right a fundamental lesson in aeronautics.
