My father has always been larger than life. In November 2012 we found out he had Cholangiocarcinoma, he fought it and gave it every thing he had...this awful disease won.
He went through multiple rounds of chemo and it seemed to be keeping it at bay.
Then, he had two chemo embolizations done on his liver, one in May 2013 and one in June 2013. He was never the same after, his health kept declining and the doctors were puzzled.
In March of 2013, he casually said, "I won't make it to August!"
My big bear of a father passed away July 30, 2013 at the age of 60!
It has always amazed me the amount of people he knew! Now we know that he someone managed to touch each and everyone of their hearts...there were over 700 people at his wake/funeral. Really kind of boggles the mind.
Harvest time will never be the same!!!
