Carol, I would LOVE to read that book when it is published. You have every reason to be proud of your papa! He must have seen and done some amazing things. And to have his stories published by a university is great! Heck, I'm proud of him, and I don't even know him!
I'm so glad to hear his first treatment went well. And that he got some of his feelings out about your uncle. I know that had to have been hard on him, and it's better to get it out...and sometimes it's easier to talk to someone that is a third party.
Your father, and your family are in my prayers.
