    Heavy Heart

    My FIL is undergoing a very aggressive chemo treatment for Leukemia. He's been in ICU since last Thursday and is putting up a brave battle. I could tell you more of what he's going through but would rather just say he's ready regardless of the outcome. Nat is a very good and decent man. If you drive across a bridge in West by gosh Virginia, chances are good he had a hand in building it. From an iron worker hanging precariously from high atop a NY City high rise to owner of his own construction company he lived life in an honest fashion with a huge heart lending help to anyone that needed it....including me.

    He is the last living son born to Bill & Sally Wilkinson. He is very proud that his brother was a Marauder pilot in WWII and sad the he lost his life in that war. Nat raised a wonderful family and I got the cream of his crop when I married his oldest daughter. I hope he wins this battle...but he's a winner regardless.
    Thanks for reading this...it helped me to write it.

    John, we will keep Nat and your entire family in our thoughts and prayers. Nat sounds like a most wonderful man, and I am sure he would be deeply moved and appreciative of the words his Son in Law wrote to describe him. Keep the faith and be strong, prayers are on the way.

    As someone who has spent a bunch of time on Most of the interstates in the US of A, as well as just simply because it is right, I'll ask for help in his battle.

    Sorry to hear about that John. It seems that different forms of cancer are becoming more and more prevalent. I wish him the best and hope he can work through it. Leukemia seems to be one that has seen great advances in treatment!
