A non fiction memoir written as a tribute to my father, Walter W. Perkins, during his struggle with cancer. A special, inspiring book about life, death, forgiveness and love of our parents. Excellent as a training, information book for caregivers.
The beast of cancer attacked Walter W. Perkins like a wild prey, stealing his health, and independence, leaving him too weak to enjoy life to its fullest.
Eventually, the monster threatened his life; nonetheless, the horrific disease of esophageal cancer could not steal his wit, or spirit. While he struggled to survive the tyrant of cancer, his courage taught his second born daughter how to forgive, and to accept painful mistakes from the past.
"No darker day ever in life have I seen; it brought to my mind the words, I mean: for of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these:
It might have been."
