On June 23rd my mother was diagnosed with cancer and she has been going through chemo and doing fine

Today ~2pm I received a call from my mother that my father had collapsed and his nitro-pills were not working and the abulance was transporting him to the hospital. I arrive and he is unresponsive. After a while he is breathing over the vent and he squeezed my hand They then moved him to SICU and he were a little hopeful leaving the hospital after visiting hours. Well throughout the night we went through two cardiac arrests one around 10 that they stabablized him on and then one @ ~3:00 in which he passed away. He lived a very long live he was born in 1929 did a total of 25 years in the Army and Air Force and retired as a master sergant and he was in Koreas and earned 5 bronze battle stars. After the military we worked at Northrup Grumman Ship Systems for another 20 years. One great man

While we were making arrangemetns with the funeral home I saw his discharge papers and I was incorrect about 25 years in the military. It was actually 20 years 8 months and 20 days.
