My dad passed away on the 2nd of June, 2012. He went into the hospital around October 2011 to have his gallbladder removed after having pain there. It was discovered that he had cancer. It spread rather fast. This happened not long after his brother passed away, and about a year after his other brother passed away. One brother is left. Richard Dawson (original host of Family Feud), whom I had a fansite for since 2000, passed away a little over an hour after my dad (also named Richard). There were a lot of things I didn’t get to do with my dad, but he was always there for me and gave me everything I needed. He wasn’t perfect, but he was the best dad I could have asked for. I’m so glad that my boyfriend Johnny got to meet him last year.
