I watched a father... Same age as you at the time.
.... was going through bowl cancer in the early 80's.
I'll never forget the sweat pouring off his face enduring the pain and always trying to throw a smile. Same age still.. 8 years old.... Watched him buried. I comforted his two young sons and a daughter. Young as I was.
Is it too soon to say I shagged and dumped his daughter 10 years later?!?
