Yesecho's Story

My second father, is the father of my girlfriend... my future wife I pray. Three years ago I started dating a beautiful girl, simply enough and as usual, I was looking, and she was there.

One day she and I were talking on the phone and she told me that her father had been diagnosed with hepC. I was not familliar with the disease so she briefed me as well as she could. She informed me that his condition had gone untreated for so long that he had developed liver cirrhosis. Well I knew what that was but I never really actualized the end result in my mind until two days ago.

In the past three years this MAN has gone from hating me, to accepting me, to making sure I did well on the job ( I started working for him months after I started dating his daughter ). Time passed
and I grew to love this man like a father, and I knew that I was something like an estranged son to him. But now I was there, for him to learn, for him to test and to talk to, I became a kid and a counseler to him, giving and recieving advice, learning and teaching the things that misfortune had brought us both.

My second father had become a symbol of strength, and a living icon. Every day that we would leave a hard job site, he would talk about being there for your family... this is what drives a MAN. This MAN has been everything from U.S. Army AIRBORNE = to = a son that lost his mother = to = a man that lost his big business = to = a man that thought he lost he lost his family..........etc...I have not the time or space to relay to you the kind of race this man won.

Two days ago my second father did not speak. At home, in bed, after four months of true fear and fighting he did not say a word.... he wasn't able. My strength, my icon had taken his turn toward our mutual father. I can't feel that it's all over, he still breathes, but this, I know this is the end of all
that was........and the beginning of everything he has inspired in me.----------- thank you Mr. G
