    'Lost my mom to ovarian cancer when she was only 56.  'Lost dad a year later, and it is his life that resonates with this diary.
    A WW2 and Korea vet, he drank and smoked to excess, only sought medical care when he woke up (sobered up) in the Emergency Room, and died at 59.  The distain he showed for his own mortality will always haunt me.
