    Default One last trip..

    ..out to see Cyndi's dad this afternoon, BP is 60 over 40, I didn't think that was even possible. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their support, and the couple loose ends still hanging I'll tighten up when we get back in a day or two. It was a good weekend with him at his shop, selling tools, but things appear to be nearing an end over the past couple days.

    If you're the praying type, I'd appreciate some good vibes sent her way. If you're not, at least give your dad a call tonight, and tell him you love him. I don't care if it's been 20 minutes or 20 years since the last time you spoke, do it anyway.

    Thanks,
    Russ

    You have our best. Everyone experiences this sooner or later. I was happy to have my Dad with me for most of my life. It's good to have a chance to say goodbye!

    Wow Russ I was totally unaware of this situation. My family and I will be praying for you, Cyndi, her dad and family. We just added you to our daily evening prayer list! I also pray he's not suffering! My heart goes out to you all!

    My dad died Super Bowl Sunday January 20, 1980 and I still talk to him and my mom (RIP) on a daily basis.

    Lost my dad 35 years ago this year (I was 19) and at times, it still feels like if it was yesterday :(

    Enjoy every minute you can possibly share with him and keep the memories alive for a life time.
