Their wedding photo.
I see why my grandma was attracted to him. She always said he looked like Paul Newman.
She grew up on a ranch in the middle of no where in New Mexico. Yes, she could shoot a gun. Even with that pretty dress on.
A pretty photo of my grandma. I would love to have that same dress to remember her by. She was almost 6 feet tall and always thin. (I never got her height.)
She was definitely a cow girl.
One of my favorite military photos of him. I have a large one of this matted and framed hanging in my dining room. He's on the left.
In front of his house with the rest of his family in Buffalo, NY. Just shortly before he left to go overseas. He's the tall one in the middle.
My grandfather died shortly after going into combat in France. This is how my grandma received word of his death. Through a telegram. My mom was 9 months old when he died. He was around my mom, his daughter, for a total of 3 days. All of the time he was away fighting in WWII (in Europe). Hank and Lorena were married for just over 1 1/2 years.
He was buried in France among the 1,000s of other soldiers buried there. A view from the ground and one from a plane. My mom visited his grave a while back.
