A few weeks ago on Father’s Day (June 15th) my Mother passed away after a 17 year battle with that shit called cancer. It began in her breast and after three bouts had spread, literally, from her brain to her foot. If it weren’t for my Mom there would be no pissed off chimp. She was an artist in her own right. She took blocks of Italian marble and chiseled them into flawless works of art. A friend of mine is doing the Live Strong Challenge on her behalf to raise money for cancer research. If you have some change between your couch cushions feel fee to send it this way… Gail Cook Van Dyke

Here are photos of her work and photos of us.

I love you, Mom.
