Christmas memories run deep
In 1981 I responded to a distress call in San Francisco Bay. It was on X-mas day and there was a five year old using the radio. He and his dad had spent the night sleeping on the deck of their sailboat. During the night the father had rolled off the boat and was missing. The kid was smart enough to be able to use the radio and we found him in a few hours based on what he said was around him. We never found his dad......thought about you this morning. Sometimes your life is touched by others in ways you can not fathom at the time. It took a fifty year old to understand what Xmas will always mean to that boy.
