At last I have a copy of my father's death certificate and know that I've inherited only my appearance and my poor vision from him. It is so strange to know that, were he alive today, he'd be almost 119 years of age. At the time the certificate was issued, there was a place for entering veteran status, and service in both world wars is noted, but not his National Guard service in Texas in connection with the Mexican border conflict (Pancho Villa and General Pershing).
