Dad did tell me a story about Frank, the attorney, my grandmother Lillian's brother. Frank had a mole on his chest that turned into cancer. Daddy said it was a huge open sore and so painful that he kept a pistol under his bed in case he could no longer stand the pain. He endured the pain until the cancer took his life.] - Rachel A.
