A Painting For Uncle Bobbie - Korean War KIA

Saturday, September 07, 2013

Got to meet the artist yesterday!! And also got to see my cousin Preston - one of Uncle Bobbie's sons. I hadn't seen him in about 5-6 years, since my grandmother died (she was the older sister and only sibling of Uncle Bobbie.)

June 2014 - just realized I had some grammar and spelling typos, and the link above no longer works. But I found the painting at a different link now:
