It Is With Great Sadness...

**THURSDAY THIRTEEN BELOW**

That I write this blog post..Today(Oct 31st) at 4:30 PM my uncle passed away..I wanted to post it here because when I posted last time about him you all were so kind & caring with your messages I want to thank you all for that..He has been on comfort measures only for the last week & today he left this earth. I miss hims so much but I know that he is no longer in any pain he is not suffering & he is finally at peace no more tubes or medications...My uncle was only 60 years old he went from being a healthy man to 8 months later being in a bed fighting for his life & no one knows why(that is what hurts the most).. My uncle was a man who could make you smile even when you were down..Even though I am 28 yrs old & I hated it I will miss him pinching my cheeks...Most of all I hate that he will never get the chance to walk me down the aisle. My uncle was a man that everyone loved no one every had a bad thing to say about him. He would give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in this wallet that was the kind of man he was he & I will always love him for being so kind & generous to other around him, He was like a father figure to me(my dad is an ass but that is another story) he would always be there when I needed him, People say they wanna marry a man like their dad I want to marry a man like my uncle.

That's a lovely tribute to your uncle, Rae. We can never really know why (in the big picture) our loved ones leave us when they do. We can only honor their place in our life and hold them in our hearts.

I'm glad he is now at peace and know that you will see him again someday.

Love to you,
Lisa
