Happy Father’s Day Dad

Maybe your dream came true. You and I traveled through an atlas that we both read together after War World II. You pointed out to me The United States of America and I was listening to you carefully. I had no idea where this country was. You explained to me that the Americans liberated France from Hitler. You had a lot of respect for those people. I was young and I did not understand yet the impact of our freedom from an ill man.

The power of storytelling

One regular day on the job, I was sitting on the couch of a Saugus resident's home, watching her two young children show off their new toys. Lit with excitement, they pulled out their best pink bows and fire trucks to impress their mom's new friend.

Gambling Dad

He was not large in stature, my Dad. He was the eleventh of twelve children, born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1907. His name was Francis Joseph Sahr. He skipped through his academic years only attending six of elementary school and two of commercial. At seventeen, he was foreman of the Pittsburgh Press mailroom. This was to set his future career in the newspaper business. Frank's parents came from Germany, the Saar Valley region. Their last name was Saar but my grandmother thought there were too many "a's" in the name so she took out one and replaced it ...
