Default Dad got it done!

My dad retired this year in May. He had back surgery and got a staph infection the first week of June. He spent 34 days in the hospital and almost passed. His strength isn't back yet but his spirit is. I had everything set up for him. We were blessed this morning. He made a great shot and couldn't be happier to be alive. Be blessed.
