    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.

    Same to you. Just six months ago he was walking up to 7 miles per day. Last few days he could hardly get out of bed.

    Sorry for your loss Steve, being able to make peace and have family close is a huge deal, that was good for your dad and your family. I survived my battle in 2005, God Bless.

    Dad carried the BRCA2 gene which is the breast cancer gene. He had male breast cancer in 1998, kidney cancer about 4 or 5 years ago and this bile duct cancer was diagnosed in January actually. Cancer is rampant in the family, like to a very notable extent with every single member of my dad's immediate family getting cancer at least once.
