20 years ago today this world lost one of the best men ever to grace it. My dad fought a 9 month battle with cancer and finally succumbed on Sept 26, 1990. He was just 42 years old. It is a day I will never forget. I was just 9 years old, but I remember every moment of that day. I went to the hospital with my mom in the morning to tell my dad good-bye, he had died by time we got there. It was the most crushing moment I've ever experienced. Dad was the most caring, patient, loving man I've ever known. He treated my mom the way a husband should treat a woman, with love and respect. He was always firm but loving with us kids. I'm so proud to call Lynn Meikle my dad.
