Saddness Prevails

I don't know if you remember or have read my blog from beginning to now, you will remember me mentioning my uncle. On Tuesday, he had a massive heart attack and died. As you can imagine, we are sad and are trying to deal with the loss and be strong for each other. I hope to be back posting soon, but right now as you can imagine I must deal with the loss. I found my peace with him a while ago and he found peace recently and knowing that made the loss understandable, if not easier to accept. I also believe that the loss of my boss in July prepared me for my uncle's death. I do know that he didn't suffer and he was at peace. Before I left for work that morning, he and my aunt were laughing and talking about the Today Show.

Life is too short, but accepting and understanding folks flaws never takes away from the love you have for them.

My uncle was my mother's brother and no matter what he was always there for my mother and for her children. One quality I could always appreciate about him was his ability to always take charge and make sure you had what you needed. He did for everyone and everyone knew Big John. So he will be missed.

Goodbye and goodnight, Uncle John!
