    I just received a call from my dad's supervisor.

    She said that there is going to be an award named after my dad. The award ceremony will be in in June. The committee approved the decision for an award to be named after my dad. What a great thing.

    I really am proud. I think my dad is really looking down on my mom and I. My mom just got a job with the NYPD. She is now a school crossing guard =).

    Tony,
    I think that is an amazing gift to your family and such an honor to your brave father. I am so happy for your family! I am also sorry he was taken so young to this horrid cancer.

    Tony, my mother in law died in September and someone said "She can help you more now than she could in life". I truly believe that. Congratulations to your mom
