Another May 4

May 4 is a decidedly bittersweet date in my life.

The Kent State shootings happened on this date in 1970. I was 7 years old.

In 2005, my dad died after a rather lengthy series of illnesses (see post immediately below).

In 2006, my niece Natalie was born. Ah, a silver lining. She is a delight.

I will have to plumb the depths of photo albums to find pix of my dad from the pre-digital age (at least in House O’ Wilson).

But here’s one of Natalie from last summer:
