One more star in the sky

Today my Dad earned his wings. He left this realm at 1:45 pm.

The night sky burns a little brighter with the addition of new star.

My dad fought a valiant fight against Stage 4 lung cancer. Although it was really his entire body was riddled with cancer. He had an incredible will and strength. He did everything on his terms.

The irony is not lost on me as November is National Lung Cancer Awareness. Be thankful for your family this holiday season and hold them close.


  1. Oh, dear Tonya-so very sad to hear this.
    Hugs to you. May he rest in peace.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Thank you for posting this lovely tribute to your father. Your simple words let us know he was well loved while on this earth. I hope that I'll remember your words when this same time comes for me. Wishing you peace...
