wow, yes--

my father got married after WWII (and he was in the war)--

so we didn't have that happen, but I knew kids whose dads had died--

and I remember a young man I knew well later in the 70s whose father had died and whose mother had remarried, and he had always been 'lost'--

one of my sibling in law's mother had lost her husband in the war--

and she had remarried and had more kids; the child from that first marriage was always a lost soul--

not really, but I think you know what I mean; he died young, anyway--

and had a hard life--

war DOES destroy families--

and that's not talked about enough--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
