I heard this and thought about my father. USN Retired.
One of the lines that strongly reminded me of Dad was the line about quitting smoking. Around 1973 dad decided he wasn’t going to smoke anymore. He was smoking 1.5 packs per day. He stopped.
Never smoked another cig. after that.
Of all of the people that are close to me I think my parents are the only parents that weren’t messed up in some way. I’ve heard so many stories from people I care about of bad childhoods.
My parents have always supported me. They were able to give me a drive to succeed and a “can do” attitude.
