My dad passed away a few months ago.
He had Cancer. He was on his 2nd year with it.

I remember when I was little, my dad would put the bedspread over his head
and he would run around the house chasing me like he was a Monster.
I remember it was fun, cool, and scary all at the same time.

My dad was really cool and I spent as much time as I could with him as I could.
My mom and my dad got a divorce when I was younger
