Just a small thank you
Blue Moon,
I wish to thank you for posting a picture of my Dad on what I believe is the Ancestry,com site., I may not be accurate as to the site, but there's no mistaking that it's definitely my Dad. I'm legally blind, but his visage is forever stored in my memory banks. My wife actually discovered it and it brought many fantastic memories to the fore! I'm my parents' only child and consider myself blessed to have been raised by such wonderful people, not just parents! I just turned 61 on 01-30-17 and am most fortunate that my Mom is both still alive and in great health.

I just wanted to reach out to thank you for including his photo!

Please feel free to contact me via email ( if the urge ever strikes you. My wife and I are just west of Washington, DC where my wife was transferred 16 years ago. I lost all of my vision in my right eye in 2004, secondary to ophthalmic shingles and it also took 85% of the vision in my left eye. I can do most things except drive and I miss riding my Harley most of all! But safety first! I'm fortunate that I'm married to my best friend and she's rhe real trouper, making sure I'm always taken care of when we're outside of our home. I'm a very lucky man!

Thanks again for including Dad's photo; great pic of an even better father!

Stay in touch if you choose to. I'm always around.

P.S. My given name is Ted but I'm not a junior as Dad and I have different middle names. Mom nicknamed me Scrappy before I was born because evidently I absolutely kicked her unmercifully and she said I was going to be a "scrappy" baby. It stuck and all of my relatives and friends still call me Scrap. A room full of people and if someone says "Ted", it takes multiple times before someone says to me that they believe someone is trying to get my attention!

Thanks for listening to me quote this into my voice ro text program and multiple thanks for posting my loving Dad's photo. take care and sincerely,
Scrap Ridings

Go Buckeyes!!!
