I love and miss you, Daddy! Happy Father’s Day in Heaven!”

“My father once told me, ‘Life is funny and tough. If you remember that, you’ll be ok.’ My father died of esophageal cancer in 2004 shortly after his 90th birthday.

“My dad died of colon cancer at the age of 56. We were extremely close, but never really expressed our feelings with words. When he became sick, I wrote him a letter to say all the things I wanted to say, however, I never gave him the letter. I sometimes regret that, but I know we had a special connection that still continues today and words can’t replace feelings. I encourage everyone over the age of 50 to get an annual colonoscopy. Happy Father’s Day to all.”
