Enduring family friendships forged by war

SP Geddes in Holland 1945Yesterday I was cleaning out a closet and found a photo of my Dad taken in early 1945 in Holland.  This photo is of the young girls in a family where Dad billeted in Veenendaal, Holland.  In 2010, when he was 90,  I took him back to Holland and England to visit with folks the he had kept in touch with since WWII.

Seventy years later our families still keep in touch with visits and on Facebook! When Dad and I returned I made a photo book of the trip. Here are some pages from the Holland visit.
