In Memory of William Boncher - Part 2

This video is not a "how to" cooking video but a memory of my father making "messy sandwiches" in May 2011. The truth was, it seemed like breakfast would take him hours to make and eat. One day, instead of getting annoyed at his long, drawn out way of doing things, I decided to join him. I asked him to make me breakfast too--and I video taped it. Three months after this video was taken he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and fourteen months later, the weekend before Thanksgiving on November 17, 2012,  he died from a glioblastoma brain tumor. I can not continue with my blog without acknowledging, in some way, his death and the profound affect it has had on me. I know that when you put things on the internet they never go away and I hope in some way, by posting this, he will always be there, in my kitchen, making me a messy sandwiches and making me laugh.
