My dad stood by my mom through every step of her cancer. He has shown our entire family the true meaning of the words "In sickness and in health". Although our family has remained very close through the years, my dad has always been my mom's rock. One of my fondest memories of my mom in her final days was watching her constantly trying to get smooches from my dad. ~Cathy
