    • Opening Narration: As the Second World War raged on in Europe and the Pacific, those of us on Walton's Mountain were adjusting to the quickened pace of wartime living. Our family was enjoying a degree of prosperity previously unknown, but our changing fortunes were bringing changing values. And so it was to my father, whose strength had always been an unquestioned source of assurance, that the pain of doubt and uncertainty would come.

    • Closing Narration: Thanks to the efforts of friends and family the mill was soon back in operation. My father, armed with a renewed sense of purpose and confidence continued to serve as a source of strength and assurance in the days to come.
