Father passing from cancer
Saturday, December 01, 2018
2018 has been a challenging year. My father was in Hospice care and given 6 weeks to live after being diagnosed with cancer in 3 places. He held on for 5 months and it was brutal to see my hero brought to such a sad state. A US Army veteran and bronze star recipient of Korea and Vietnam, my father was a man of faith, kind-hearted and honest who dearly loved our country. What I learned was how to gracefully without complaining take your final breath. No matter how severe the pain, he did not complain. It was the little things that brought joy to his day...Atlanta Braves, his favorite foods or just seeing his family. He held on to celebrate his 68th wedding anniversary with my mom.
