After a hard-fought 2 year 7 month battle with cancer, my Dad finally passed away on May 6, 2013, around 10:40pm. I still can hardly believe I’m typing these words.
(My Dad catching the biggest fish our pond has ever had. He was the only one to have ever done it! Now it’s my turn…)
Before I begin, I’d like to note that these pictures are just a TINY fragment of the hundreds of pictures of my Dad, all of which I will collect and touch up and put to music in a slideshow later in the week. It will be a real treat.
I’d like to share with you my experience from this past month, the last month of my Dad’s life, and all of the unique hardship (and even joy) that it brought. So much has happened in this short time; my Dad’s last hospital visit, a very successful benefit dinner, a hellish week+ at home where we took care of him 24/7, the hospice home, and his final days. I think it’ll be a few years before I fully comprehend this one month of time. Where do I begin?
