I am the grandson of your father. The two children you spoke of in your post are my mother, Victoria Halverson of Nehalem, OR, and David Johns of Portland, OR. Your father is one of the greatest men I've ever known, and I miss him dearly. His widow, Dolores (my grandmother) still resides in Nehalem, OR. I took the liberty of doing a search for you on the internet, and had the pleasure of reading some of your poetry. You are a beautiful writer, and the subject of your writing is near and dear to my heart. I am a Naval Intelligence Officer with 15 years service and share in your contempt for UBL. I too have had poetry published, thus with all this in common, I feel an immediate connection to you. Just so you know, your father was an extraordinary man that had a huge impact in my life. His passing hit me very hard, and I often show pictures of him to my own sons, for they don't know what they missed. I would be happy to email you pictures of him and speak with you about him. I am truly happy to have found a piece of him in you and could hardly contain my excitement when I read your post. Please contact me at anytime.
My contact information is as follows:
I also have a MySpace page which is : www.myspace.com/dirtysailor93
I look forward to hearing from you.
