Father and Son Reunion

Matthew and Bill with Numa, Suzie and Matthew's dog we're keeping temporarily.

Our son made a special trip down from Greensboro to see his father, the man he calls Pops, for Father's Day. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing them together. Matthew's gift to his Dad was a black and white print of a photograph he took of the 611 steam engine while he was in high school.

Matthew has always had a great love of trains and an insatiable curiosity about them. In his youth, he and his father took many memorable train trips together. Once they returned home, Matthew would sit down and draw from memory the engines he had just seen. Their detail never ceased to amaze us.
