(BRUSH, Colo., -February 23, 2004)- Stan gets a brush from a drawer and Harold works the tonic into his head and hair. After his shower, and before breakfast, early in the kitchen, Stan combs Harolds hair. Stan and Harold Gray are father and son. Stan, 76, is retired from the air force with a strong love of flying. He has two children. He still works part time as a veterans administration employee in Fort Morgan, CO twice a week. He recently moved back into the family home to take care of his father. Harold, 103, has owned the home 70 years and has been legally blind for 18 years. He was married for 67 years. He has 16 grand children. He has 8 great grand children. He has 5 great-great grand children. Harold still bathes, shaves and dresses himself right down to tying his shoes. His favorite pasttime is sitting in his favorite chair listening to the world at his south facing window. He keeps a close watch on current events through radio and t.v. and loves, still, going for car rides to great colorado sunsets as described to him by his son Stan. The two have become tight as friends and Harold says of Stan, "He's a real marvel!" This from a man who gives out compliments with great quiet pride. The legacy of each is now the other. "Equilibriatory Triad", Stan calls it, when he takes "dad" for a walk and allows him space unattended to regain his balance by walking alone... (Photo by: STEVEN R. NICKERSON/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS )
