I'm working here.

This photo was taken just weeks before my 87 year old dad found out he had terminal brain and lung cancer. His prognosis was 3 to 6 months to live, he lived for 3. I grew up with my dad welding often, and he would always tell me not to look at the flame. He was an amazing man, always fixing things, and working on things.
