My younger male sibling, proprietor of Shock & Blog, has brought to my attention the fact that Dennis Weaver, best known for his portrayal of the title character in the TV show McCloud, died due to complications from cancer on February 24, 2006.

The above picture was not chosen arbitrarily. Dennis Weaver looked a lot like my father and this photo reminds me a lot of him. Interestingly, dad also died of complications from cancer in February 1998. It seems so long ago, but I remember it like it was yesterday.
