Re: my dad is dying of throat cancer
I feel your pain. There is nothing harder to go through.
Why don't you start asking your dad questions about his life, perhaps about his early years. There are probably a lot of things you don't know about him. You might also consider getting out all your photos and creating a "This is Your Life" album all about him. Get him to talk about the photos.
Best wishes to you.
