    My father recently passed away of lymphoma. He worked in the mines for 20 years and was retired when he passed away. He was always telling us horror stories of what went on down there and he worked in a union mine. He almost drowned one time, and almost lost his thumb. I'm glad he never died in the mines, but sometimes I wonder if the stuff he was exposed to down there didn't contribute to his lyphoma.

    I thank you for this diary even tho it's bringing tears to my eyes because I miss my dad.

    I'm not a slacker...I'm just surrounded by overachievers!
