I have already out lived my dad's age when he died.....lot of health issues. VA gave him a disability due to his exposure to radiation when his volunteer Marine group inspected Nagasaki two weeks after they dropped the bomb. But probably the biggest issue for dad was his nicotine addiction and three failed marriages. He died in 84 at 61. Over a two year period I lost the three most important men in my life...Dad..my grandfather and my pastor. For the last three weeks I have spent hours on the phone counseling my son in law trying to save his marriage to my daughter..........just got off the phone with her having to tell her some difficult but necessary things. The last three days have been pretty rough, but we don't stop being dads and having at least spiritual authority over our kids when they leave home........with 7 kids between Clair and I seems like we're still raising them and it's still a full time job....youngest being 25!
