That's awesome! I mean to have that much detailed history in your family. Pope, WWII, flying B-52's ...Let me start this out - even though (based on recent history I have absolutely no chance of winning...)
My father is/was a superhero because he was a WWII veteran who flew B-25 bombers from Italy during the war. It turns out that the former Pope was one of the one shooting at him in the Brenner Pass
So much for embracing the Papal history. If he was a better shot, I wouldn't be here!
You must have been very well behaved children! 5 kids and not raise his voice? You're dad was definitely a superhero!My Dad is/was a superhero because he had the patience of Job. Five kids and he rarely raised his voice to us. I struggle to remember him being angry.
Your Grandpa is a superhero as well! Loved your story, Loretta!My Daddy is and was my Superhero because in 1964 when he found out about me, as the story goes, "by my Grandpa hunting him down by shotgun and when my Mom's Dad found my Dad at a local pub, two-sheets in the wind, Grandpa Bridges held steadfast with the shotgun and said, "Boy you better go name your daughter!!" In that sobering moment that's when my Daddy because became more than my Daddy, he became my Superhero... forever.
808 I miss you Pop
What a super supportive dad!My dad is my superhero because he is never gave up on me, always reminded that I was the only thing that could hold me back from being whatever I wanted to be. Even when I told him I wanted to join the boy`s high school football team and I knew he thought I was insane, he encouraged me to do my best.
