from being the greatest dad I could ever imagine having,
he was my inspiration for becoming a full-time entertainer.
(Even though he probably would've liked it if I became a doctor or lawyer

and coping with this disease and hopefully one day find a cure so that no one
else will have to know the pain of the loss of a loved one to cancer.
