My dad was born 97 years ago today...

This is my father, Arthur Aaron, 
at age four, dressed as Little Lord 
Fauntleroy. He was very talented, 
brave and had a good soul. 

He quit smoking when he was 53,
breaking free from a two pack a
day habit and would have been 97
today, but he died of lung cancer
when he was only 56.

He would say, "I've not had 
a cigarette in two years. one 
month and six days...
but who's counting...?"

Hey Pop,  Happy Birthday.
Forty years later, you're still
really missed...

In case you hadn't heard, 
I finally quit.
