Thursday was a sad day for Americans. Beloved ‘Last Man Standing’ and ‘Home Improvement’ star Tim Allen has kept us entertained for decades. But unfortunately, we lost this great man to a very painful disease.

Six years ago, Allen was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinomas. While he underwent treatment, doctors said the prognosis didn’t look good. And unfortunately, they were right. Despite his rapidly failing health, Tim Allen continued to serve the American people, making us laugh — and most importantly, think.

Allen’s wife Tracy told Fox News that “his mission in life was to help his fellow Americans, and he did that best through his comedy.”

Tim Allen was a true patriot, often using his Last Man Standing show to criticize liberal Democrats and their mission to destroy America. And he thought about that up until the moment he died.

“When he was laying in the hospital, he looked at me and he said ‘Tracy, you tell the American people that I love them. You tell them that there is hope for the future, and that hope is Donald J. Trump. You tell them that I’ll be looking down on them from Heaven,” Tracy Allen said. “He was a true believer in the American Dream, and he saw President Trump as the embodiment of that dream.”

“My husband wants everyone to know that he didn’t abandon them,” she continued. “He told me to give $500,000 to President Trump’s re-election campaign because he wants America to truly be great again. And I’m going to do it.”

Tim Allen was a true national treasure, and he will be missed dearly.
