Thanks for the cool links. ML seems like such a giving person - to his own children, those of his wife and even ones he adopted - they were all his. No matter what was said in things like "The Father I Knew" (ML junior's documentary), it's obvious he had a great deal of love for his children that didn't change. I remember reading in Cheryl Landon's book about him where her birth father was upset that she called ML "dad" and wouldn't allow ML to adopt her, ML told her that all that mattered was they loved each other like father and daughter.
