Dear Phebe-
This is the car your grandfather, John Robert Corcoran, was driving the night he died, January 19, 1949.
It is said he may have fallen asleep and run off the road. The car “snapped pole 83 off and knocked down six posts.”  He was thrown from the car and ended up pinned beneath it.  He was 29.
The bird flying above the car is protector of his spirit; also embodies his survivors: his parents and brother; his friends; his wife Ruth and young child; finally, the unborn child Ruth was carrying.
