My Dad had the ability to light up a room when he walked in. His smile, laugh, and voice just naturally attracted people to him. He was truly one of a kind, a genuine and caring person to all he met. The devastating disease of cholangiocarcinoma may have taken my Dad away, but it did not take away the memory of his strength, courage, and love for life. He is with me in everything I do and always by my side. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of him, but his spirit gives me the strength and determination to never give up and to see the positive in life. I miss him so much. He was a father and best friend. This picture was taken on my birthday right before he got sick in June 2012. He passed away in January 2013. A retired engineer, he was an RC plane hobby builder and enthusiast. I know God gave him a pair of wings…I call my angel.
