My friends dad Mr Carl Bolender (80's)has been struggling with leukemia since the mid 90's. They gave him 3-6 months to live. Lots of prayer put the disease into remission. He was quit healthy till about 6 months ago. He had a triple bypass, and received a pig valve transplant. After being weakened by the surgery his leukemia came out of remission. The last weak has been real tough on him. He was a strong old cowboy with a large loving family. Until recently he has been driving his big 4wd tractor, and taking care of his ranch, and animals. The man has given much to his family, friends, and the community. He will be dearly missed by a multitude. He is in a much better place now. This is kinda my goodbye to him, and I will see him again. Its sad that he is gone, but it is also a happy time knowing that he is feeling no pain now, and he is up in glory.
