It's me again. Please let us know if you have a preference for how you would like to be addressed. I understand you are a retired Navy officer and my grandfather was a stickler for having his rank used when he was addressed. (He did cut us grandkids some slack.)
I wanted to let you know that there is video footage of Cardini performing a good portion of his act on the website, www.youtube.com.
I thought you might enjoy seeing him again. You can also probably find quite a bit of your father and Slydini.
