This year for Christmas I gave  a copy of this framed picture to my two Grandsons.  There was a mat around the picture on which I had written the following information.

Lt. Theodore E. Downs
Plane:B24 Liberator, named the "Gallant Lady"
8th Army Air Force
445th Bombardment Group, 700th Bomber Squadron
Tibenham, England - 1943
Daddy must have been around 18 or 19 years old in the picture.
January 8th is my Fathers birthday.

A very sweet gift for your grandsons. They will always treasure it. You have also given me a great idea for gifts next year.
You must miss your daddy very much. I know I miss mine more with each passing day.

Very sweet idea. Just reading the title, I thought of my own dad who has now been gone almost 30 yrs. He was never "Dad", always "Daddy" to my sister and me. I am sorry that you don't have your dad to hug today. I truly do know how you feel.
