This coming Friday, on August 23rd, my Dad would have celebrated his 75th birthday. This horrible cancer took him way too soon. The void in all of our lives is immeasurable and nothing will ever be the same. For eight months he fought like a champ, trying to rehabilitate himself with the hope of being able to continue his treatments to battle this monster. Unfortunately, that was not meant to be. Infection after infection, and one complication after another, he fought with all he had until his body could take no more.
