My father (Jim) was a doughboy in WWI. It was at that time that his health issues begun. He came in contact with "mustard gas" and suffered from lung disease his entire life. He spent time in the Fitzsimmons Hospital in Denver, CO as well as the VA Hospital in SLC. At the time of his death he had only half of one lung left. My mother (Madie) was at his side when he passed away.
