Papa Bill

People of my age are not supposed to lose their parents yet. We are not that old. Our parents are not that old.

Mike's dad has been fighting cancer for almost a year now. At his last appointment, they told him the chemo isn't helping anymore. He has two more months.

TWO MORE MONTHS.

Guys I hope you can take the time you have left to make some final memories to hold with you the rest of your life. I know that sometimes those final memories can be some of the most treasured and will be the things that you can look back on and truely cherish in the years to come. Mike I am truely sorry to hear of your pain.

I posted a comment here last night, but it is not here--hmmmm...

What I said is, I am glad that Mike and his Dad were able to get close, to find love and more important, respect, for one another the last year. This is SO IMPORTANT for the long term living with this. I love you guys, and will keep you and them in my prayers and meditations.
