01-01-2015 Your Great-Grandfather

Dear Joseph and Lucia,

Your Great Grandfather, Elmer Hiram Randel, lived a full life.  It was sadly too brief. After all the airplanes he flew through war and peace, it was eventually just a domestic act of violence that ended his life when my own dad was only 14.

He had his own flying circus with a his biplane. Your great grandmother did the wing walking. When war came about, he volunteered to train young pilots and flew supply routes all over the globe. It makes me proud to be a Randel after him.  I can only hope I’m filling the shoes left behind.

Enjoy the pictures. I’ll be waiting.
