Leif & His Dad - Sachsen bei Ansbach, Germany - Summer 1978 - Age 3
Here's another picture of Peter W. reading to Leif. This one was taken on the patio at the house we rented at Am Roemer 1, Sachsen bei Ansbach. It's such a good symbol of all the good times we had together, and how close Peter W. was to his sons.
When kids grow up and leave home, they naturally seem to leave behind their memories of that childhood closeness. It's replaced by an adult distance, but I think in our parental minds, there is always the memory of that closeness, the cuddles, the stories shared.
Leif was three-and-a-half years old in this photo.
