One HUNDRED years ago today...

....My father, Gilbert W. Cain, was born.

He was raised in suburban Philadelphia and the Eastern shore of Maryland.

He had a brother named Don and parents that died before I was born.

He went to Penn and was at the top of his class.

He was an engineer with the US Army at Frankford Arsenal in Philly.

He lost his first wife Marjorie (my mother) to an early, sudden death only 8 years after they married, retired early & puttered for about 25 years. He died at 86 in 1995.

He was really the only parent I ever knew... I think about him every day. Happy Birthday, Daddy.
