My dad served in two wars has been flying airplanes for 60 years now. He was certainly quite an inspiration.
My mother’s incredibly giving, almost too giving at times. And, my dad is a real logical person. He’s got logic for every situation. They’ve been married for 24 years, so there was that stability, also. I really learned to think on my own at a very young age.
My dad had emphysema and both of my parents had chronic bronchitis and ended up with cancers – all smoking related.
