This was a great telling of a fascinating story with a message that hits home. I love how you explained about the CCC and what life was like back then. Your dad sounds like a treasure. Thanks for sharing!
Awwww I loved your entry and your story about your Dad...and all that he accomplished. He lived a long life that obviously was very fruitful.

Thank you for sharing this with us, it touched my heart, and your Dad was special, I felt it in your words, and it made my heart smile.

Well done,

This is a wonderful, touching story. Poverty is hard, war is unbearable, God is faithful and knows how to turn every sorrow into something beautiful! Thank you for sharing and expressing it so well!
Your father sounds like a great man. I
Good job introducing and tracing your daddy's incredible and inspiring story, and bringing it to a good conclusion.

Some red ink: consider breaking up some of the paragraphs, especially where dialogue is involved. Give each character's words their own paragraph and put a different character's reaction to the words in a separate paragraph as well.

Thanks for sharing this story. It is told well.
This is a smooth flowing family history story. Well written.
