My Dad: My True Hero

My Dad: My True Hero

My Dad Jesse Louis Wilson is a true hero in my family. Our story begins sixteen years ago as he lost his son(my brother) and his wife(my mother) one month apart. We went through a terrible couple of years before as they both had brain cancer. My day would work all day and come home at night and relieve me to take care of my mother.. My dad was there to help them through their sickness and provide tender loving care. The next obstacle he faced was how devastated our family was after their passing. He had to help all of us through this and remind us all that the Lord would see us through.He soon lost his father all happening in the same year. He also had to think of a baby that was 9 months old that was my brothers. As time went on he remarried a wonderful lady and I saw happiness again. But last fall he received the news that his wife has cancer and he is fighting again to see her through. He is a hero as he tells everyone around him that the Lord will see the family through again. He has a very cheerful outlook on life and he is a hero to me as he always tries to do what is right for our family and is always there to help all of us.
