Well, it wasn't sudden but my dad lost his battle with cancer this week. We've been out in Phoenix area helping out and saying goodbye for the last two weeks. This was his third different cancer ... which is virtually unheard of from what I've been told. Anyhow I've know people who've lost loved ones due to sudden things like heart attacks and car wrecks, and never got to say goodbye. So we did get to say goodbye and dad made his peace with God, family and friends. Anyhow. Cancer sucks. Edit: adding a pic of my folks taken in Dec 2013.
