Rescuer's Grandson

It's been so long now, many of you may not remember Captain Stan Shafer who ran my EMS division for years. He died in the mid '80's. Below, is a photo of him shortly before his death. He was suited up for a search and rescue operation, hence the bear protection he was carrying. Behind him is the Chisum Air chopper (which later went down in a blizzard killing John Stimson, my book Fire and Ice). Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I saw and took a really lousey photo of Stan's grandson, which he never saw.  Thor was suited up for a hockey game which followed my grandson's game. Stan would have been really proud of this little guy.
