    That was outstanding and totally went in a direction I did not expect. :-)

    I know my dad struggled a bit with depression while he was going through radiation and then right after, especially when they told him that he wouldn’t be able to take chemo. 

    It’s good that Jeff can laugh about it. I think what got me through my dad’s death and funeral, etc, is my families extraordinary ability to laugh in the face of death and despair…. mostly by telling family stories… 

    Also, FUCK CANCER… In the  ear!!!
