Wear Suncreen aka Cancer Sucks
I had two titles bouncing around in my head for this blog post and I just couldn’t decide – so I went with both.
If you follow my blog regularly you know I’ve been kind of AWOL lately. On September 1, 2011 my father-in-law was diagnosed with an inoperable Stage 4 brain tumor. Something like that has a way of rearranging your priorities and my blogging (temporarily) fell to the side as my husband and I tried to cope with the diagnosis and everything that went with it. It is believed that this is the result of a melanoma he had removed from his back four years ago – hence the “wear sunscreen” title.
On October 2, 2011 my father-in-law lost his all to brief battle. So today as I resume my blogging “duties” I wanted to memorialize the man that I only got to spend nine years with – but whom I will never forget.
Disclaimer: these are all old family photos – if I knew who shot them I would give credit but I don’t. I just know it wasn’t me.
If anyone has any suggestions re: software that would clean up some of these old, scratched, lowres images I would be glad to hear them.
RIP Ernie – you will be missed by many.
