The picture is of Dad's best friend, Gus Hien. Other aliases: William, Bill , GW and Heinleg. You will notice that there are letters from him to my mom as well. I have them placed in the order in which they were written. In his
letters you will see he refers to my dad as Stretch or ST. My dad was 6'4" and very lean at 20! I was able to locate Gus' daughter on the internet and sent her all the originals of her dad's letters so that she could have and cherish her dad's
letters. We have become friends and I look forward to meeting her in person (once again since we did meet many years ago when we were in elementary school). We both share a strong bond with our dads, even though they are both gone now and
still consider ourselves, daddy's girls!
