I got a call from my dad today. His wife, my nana was diagnosed this morning with colon cancer. According to my dad the doctor said that based on the type and size shes had it for about 10 years. She seems in good sprits, I spoke with her this afternoon. They are operating on her tomorrow so I would ask if you think of it, send your prayers and good thoughts. I also got a call from my uncle, his wife’s uncles, who I was friends with died a few months ago. He was part of the oldest gay couple I knew. He and his partner had been together for almost 35 years. Pretty amazing! Just as an aside about gay marriage, Dick had to name my aunt and her son power of attorney in order to carry out his wishes to be cremated, even though Dick and Vince had been together as long as they had been. That’s stupid !!
