This was my Father, he was a true hero of this country and of my family. The last 10 years of his life he suffered from kidney failure. I as his youngest son had the priveilige of donating a kidney to him in the hope of making his life a little easier. In the end he died from this disease. He is always going to be a hero in my eyes.
