Battle lost

      We lost a great man to a yearlong battle with Melanoma on 9/2/14.  He was my father in-law.  I have loved and respected him for 38 years.  His Melanoma was found too late and was very aggressive, he fought the battle hard but it took him without notice.  He had brain tumors that were not yet detected; he was scheduled for a MRI on 8/29/14.  A blood vessel that was feeding one of the 2 tumors in his brain burst on 8/25/14 and he had a severe stroke.

      I am so thankful for the time spent with him over the years and especially the past year walking through this terrible disease with him.  I found out on 3/25/14 that I have Stage 3a Melanoma, this drew us even closer as I could now personally relate to his fears and concerns.  

      On 8/23/14 my mother in-law, father in-law, wife and I went out to dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversaries together; theirs was 57 years on 8/12/14 and ours was 35 years on 8/26/14.  I am so glad for the memories. 

      Please pray for our family and for my wife, as she not only grieves for her daddy but also fears for me.

      Thank you,

      Ken
