    About four months ago, my dad was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer at 75. After his diagnosis I spent just about every spare moment I had with him every day. His decline was rapid and difficult to witness on such an intimate level. I watched him take his last breath in the hospital and was happy I was able to be with him in his last moments. Gonna miss his dry, dark sense of humor and ability to make me laugh no matter how bad any situation seemed to be. Not long after his passing, I received a condolence card from the VCA, and then a personal card from Bill and Janey White. Just wanted to thank them and say how much I appreciated it.

    Thanks guys. My dad had 8 kids from 5 different women and made his last child support payment at 65. He led an interesting life to say the least. Just happy he's not suffering anymore.

    Sorry for your loss. Your Dad contacted me after he passed and asked me to pass on a request to you. It was cryptic. He said: "Keep em all healthy and down there." He said that you would know what he meant.

    Best,

    Bob

    That can't be true Bob, because if he did contact you, he would have berated you with racial epithets and stereotypical jokes....:D

    He did at first but after I told him I was part of the earth based office that provides data to help determine assignments in heaven to you know who and described some of the possible alternatives and what they are based on, he suddenly became very charming. LQ.

    Thanks you guys. With 8 kids, 28 grand kids, and 9 great grand kids, he left his mark. And he loved riding in the Viper. He said it was the only car that scared the $hit out of him.
