I knew this day would come

Yesterday my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given three to four weeks to live. I leave for Napa tomorrow.

He is an alcoholic, and because of that our relationship hasn't been great the past few years. I know right now he is having some regrets. But I'm determined not to let him spend his last days like that. Regardless of all that's happened, I know that he loves us kids so much and I need him to understand that.

Please say a prayer for us, that he has no pain and that we have strength.

What can I do? Can I help in anyway? Please call with anything that you need. You stood by my side when my mom died so many years ago; please let me help if you need it or even if you don't. You have had it rough these past few months. My thoughts and prayers are with you at every moment.
