Dad

His birthday rapidly approaching...Nov 29...he would have been 71 years old. I remember his birthday last year...he had arrived in San Antonio just a couple of weeks earlier. After 3 long years of not seeing him, I was really happy that they had finally had made the journey over - for good! It didn't take much to put a smile on his face - bought him some cake and ice cream, that was enough to make his day. I felt so happy and proud...he certainly didn't look his age and by the look of things the cancer had been in remission. Things were looking really good!

Not even a year goes by and he is no longer with me...the cancer we thought was under control, crept up and took his spirit first, his heart second and shortly after his life. September 02, 2006 ... i'll never forget the day I had to hold my father's hand while he gave his last breath.

Happy Birthday Daddy-O! May you REST IN PEACE.
