Ma and Dad
25th Wedding Anniversary Party
Today is the 32nd anniversary of my dad's passing; he was 49.
I was 18 going on 19 when one of my childhood nightmares manifested. Dad's illness came on suddenly. The cancer in his body took over and he was dead within 7 months.
Pancreatic cancer was my dad's killer.
Dad was my biggest fan. He encouraged my creativity and listened to my dreams. I was fortunate to have him as my father; he taught me lessons that have carried me through life.
Today, dad is in my thoughts as I wonder what life would have been like for my family and me if he had lived to be an old man.
32 years... it seems like yesterday.
If the spirit of those we love can hear us, I have a message for my dad...
I love you dad! Please help me with Ma.
