    Pour a sip...

    My father passed away last night after a 6 month battle with Luekemia. Spent some time in Vietnam and served the country (USAF) for 25 years.

    This stuff just isn't fun...

    Sorry to hear, Joe. May your loss be his Eternal Gain.

    My heart goes out to the Vietnam vets. They suffered overseas and at home. Hope you and yours find peace in the days to come.

    Terrible news. Condolences to you and your family. As Steven says, and I love this saying, may his memory be a blessing to you. It brings me comfort and I hope it does for you as well.

    So sorry to hear. Losing a parent is a tough one especially this time of year.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Sorry to hear that. Losing your dad is really tough. Leukemia took my uncle and it was not pretty, so I can imagine it was not a good six months for you and your family.
