Happy birthday, pop.

John E Wren, was born on this day in 1924. Cancer took him November 15, 1979. He had 4 older sisters, his dad died when he was only 8.

Before dad died I realized he'd never talked about his dad. "I guess I resented him," he told me from his final of a long series of hospital beds. "I always thought my life would have been a whole lot easier if he'd fought it a little harder."

I've always wondered since then if dad might have lived longer if he hadn't been forced as a kid to fight it quite so hard,
