Dad had a number of health problems along the way. At about age 41 he lost all of his teeth and wore false teeth for the remainder of his life. During the late 1930’s he had a form of stomach ulcers that are now completely treatable. For several years he ate a bland diet and finally conquered it. In the early 1940’s he had progressive arthritis in his hands. In 1942 he went to Hot Springs For treatment and visited with his Army friend, Steve Murrin. With this condition, he either got better or adapted to living with it because he seemed less concerned about it after 1943 when my parents started going to Florida in the winter.
