Good to hear your dad is doing better.
I agree when you look at the whole picture of Life and Family especially at this time of year. It puts things in perspective.
From talking with you over that past year or so I have gotten the feeling that you and your Dad have a good relationship. Its scarey when you think you may never have them to talk with again. My Dad was my best friend and was taken from us at way to young of an age. I miss him every day. So make every day count.
Sorry I didnt see this thread earllier. I have not been keeping up much with OSO lately. I tried to stir the pot a bit with the LOTO Havasu thing and could barely get a rise outta Nort.
We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers
