Michael Frome. God speed, Good Sir.
I love the jaunty photo. And I cherish the man.
God speed, Good Sir. Say hello to Saunie for me.
Love, Gaye Lyn
Three weeks ago today, on 4 September 2016, our 1946 Veterans Air Navigator, Michael Frome, passed away. On that very day, before I learned of his passing, I had published a Post about having found him.
Michael had turned 96 years young on May 25th this year.
A sadness at never meeting him face-to-face permeates me still. But the joy and celebration at finding him when I did overrides any regret. We exchanged stories of his long-ago adventures which delighted us both – and will remain with me forever. I am deeply honored.
An impressive Life.
Proud you included us, Michael.
I could share more but must stop. From here, I leave you with a lovely 3-page farewell from Michael himself published in his own, last Portogram. It stands as the best embellishment and testimony I can offer to my Post on September 4th.
