"...I've lost my daddy, my best friend, my mentor."
Mary Rondeu has left a new comment on your post "For all the Family THANKS":
I think everybody is shocked at the passing of Dad. Let me try to tell what happened to him. As most of you know he had pneumonia in December. He really never got well from it, as he had a dragged out bad dry cough. Last Wednesday he spit up blood. He went back to the doctor with Mom with him. The doctor told Mom, Dad was told a year ago that he had a tumor in his right lung. Dad told the doctor he would be back to see him a few days later. Dad never went back. The doctor told Mom all the years of breathing diesel smoke and his smoking had caught up with him. He started to hemorrhage Friday so they tried to remove the right lung. A blood clot near the tumor broke lose and went to his heart. I would like to say I've lost my daddy, my best friend, my mentor. Thanks for the nice thoughts.
