Cancer Patient's Dying Wish Was Granted

A Kilgore man's dying wish has come true. Three weeks ago we brought you the story of an 87 year old man's search for his son.

Mart Gordon of Kilgore was told he had liver cancer and was given just a week to live. But he was desperately trying to find the son he hadn't seen in 26 years. The two had been estranged since Mart and his son's mother divorced.

Mart's family says they found his son, Tony, in Odessa and he was able to come to East Texas to see his father. Mart passed away soon after the visit.
