This is my father. When he was 26 years old he got in a knife fight and the doctors told his Mom that he wasn't going to make it, but he did. In 1980 he was hit by a train while driving his diesel. He was thrown through the windshield and the hot engine burnt all of the hair off of his head. He was dragged down the tracks almost half a mile and it broke his neck. The doctor told my Mom that he wasn't going to make it, but he did. Almost 3 years ago he was diagnosed with cancer and was given 6 months to live, he's still alive and tough as nails. My Dad is my hero and I can only hope to be as good a man as him one day. I love you Dad.
