Don't Do My Thinking For Me

This is a picture of my uncle, Charles H Dalton III. He lived life on his own terms. He was an 89 year old WWII veteran who lived in south Phoenix, AZ. He said to me as he aged, "Don't do my thinking for me." He wanted to continue making his own decisions while he was able. He was interred at the Prescott National Cemetery November 2018.
