Dear Friends it seems as if my bouyed spirits are not to be realized. As many of you know my father recently suffered a rather severe heart attack, as he has been recovering from that other more serious complications have arisen. It seems Dad has advanced liver cancer and it is likely it will end his life soon. I plan on traveling to see him as soon as I can. What I ask for here and I do beg everyones mercy in this regardless of your beliefs is to pray I get to see him at least one last time before he passes. He was and is the Dad he didn't have to be as the song goes. He treated me and my brother always as equals, I was never introduced as his step son I was always HIS son. This man cared for me, protected me, educated me, and most of all loved me as his own all of my life. All I ask of you is to pray for his gentle passing into the next life. He deserves at least that for all the sacrifice his has made not only to our immediate family, but to others outside our family that he has reached out and touched. Before anything else he is a decorated veteran of the Korean War when others went home he went back and served again and again! I appreciate your kind thoughts and prayers on his behalf. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!
