    you and your dad and your family.
    If I may presume to make a suggestion or two:

    He’s a Republican. I’m not.
    Try not to talk politics with him.  If he wants to needs to, just listen and send silent love.
    He’s religious. I’m not.
    Be spiritual (not religious) if you can.  If not, be kind.
    He likes bacon on his pizza. I find that a horrid thought.
    That's why most pizza places will make a half and half.
    Good luck, good cheer, and enjoy the holidays, and your time left with your courageous father the best you can.

      I stopped during the '08 primaries. He's a very 'world is black and white' sort of person, I see about a million shades of gray.

      Be spiritual (not religious) if you can.  If not, be kind.

      I actually pray, just sort of in a "Hey, universe" way. I totally respect him for his belief, even if it isn't for me.
