Nicholas Thomas Stafford

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Lance Stafford on November 9, 2007:

There are so many things I miss about my dad. Near the top of the list are all the wonderful memories I have of spending time with his classmates from West Point. I remember pouring over his yearbooks as a child and feeling he was part of something extraordinary.

We lost him almost 10 years ago. During that time my three younger siblings have all married and my sister Tara is working on bringing what would have been his fourth grandchild into the world. We named the youngest of our two children Nicholas Thomas Stafford V. I think we have all been fortunate to be able to recognize in our children a healthy dose of Dad's sense of humor, his charisma and his gentle but intense spirit.

I would appreciate the opportunity to establish contact with more of his classmates who might be able to share their own memories of Nick with me and my family. We live in Atlanta now, as does my brother Jimmy who arrived just recently. I am also in New York City quite often.

Best regards,

Lance Stafford (staffordiv@bellsouth.net)
