45 years ago, I was 28 yrs old and I was living in Québec City with my young family. I was the primary IBM systems engineer dealing with the main computer facility of the Québec Government. On that day, 11/22/63 I was walking towards that computer centre when the radio blared out the news of JFK‘s encounter in Dallas, TX with a lone or multiple assassins. Another phrase from that time comes back to me, The Texas Book Depositary.

I mostly remember the next three days that ended on the Sunday funeral and burial ceremonies in Washington DC. Only Caroline Kennedy survives today. It is saddening to think of all that happened to the US, the world and to me since that stomach churning day, November 22, 1963.
