“Son, don’t cheat. I’ve had plenty of opportunities over the years but it’s like this…why would I go out for a hamburger when I have a steak at home.” —Carmen DiLorenzo

Recently we had the privilege to be with Tony’s dad as he took his final breath here on earth.

As his time was coming to an end he had plenty of advice about marriage and love.

Words that we need to hear and understand to fully grasp the significance that they carry for each of us.

In 1972 their marriage began and with that as with any marriage the storms came too. They had their ups and downs, financially, relationally and most recently, medically (lung cancer).

Yes… cancer sucks!

And yet there was a gift that came from the cancer diagnosis.

An awareness that one’s days are numbered.

Taking time to make sure that you said what you need to.

The ability to love deeply and to deeply feel loved.

During the final days leading up to dad’s death he had so much wisdom to impart on marriage.

In this week’s show Tony and Alisa talk about the responsibility a father has to give sound advice to his children on living a marriage for years to come.
