Joshua relayed the following conversation he had with our second son Asher, 8 1/2. They were talking about David Cook’s brother who died of brain cancer. Joshua said that some people recover from cancer, and some people don’t. My father (Saba) had cancer when Asher was born, and thank God is still here with us today. He is very involved with his grandchildren and loves to do hands-on projects with them, and he and Asher built a birdhouse for our yard a number of years ago. He also fixes just about everything that breaks in our house.
Josh: Some people die, and some people recover. Like Saba. He had cancer, but he recovered and does not have any more cancer.
Asher: That’s good. He’s a useful guy.
