October 22 – Till we meet again
Saturday morning dad lost his 2 1/2 year battle with lung cancer. Cancer is a terrible monster but it can’t take away the 51 years of memories that I have of dad.
Dad loved his wife, family and working with his backhoe. I learned from dad that all jobs no matter how complex or simple needed to be done with the best of your ability. Hard work and attention to detail was very important to him.
Pops never wanted anyone to feel sorry for him and his cancer battle, and he told us “ we can’t always be the lucky ones”. He told me he had a great life, although he had concerns about mom when he was gone. Rest easy dad as mom has everything she needs and a large family who will be there for her. Thanks for everything and we will meet again!!
