RIP (Gr)uncle Chuck

My wonderful uncle passed away this morning. He suffered a stroke a few weeks ago and things just didn't go well from there... I had the opportunity to go visit him one last time in the hospital, to say my goodbyes and share my love with my aunt and cousin. He has meant so much to me, especially in the last eleven years when he became basically another dad to me.

We love him and we will miss him! He was such a wonderful uncle/grandfather to my kids... I don't think I have many pictures where he isn't playing with one of them :) I am saddened to think of the conversations we won't have again, the laughs we won't share, the advice that he won't be able to give me. But I take comfort in his peace and in the faith that I will see him again!

I'm sorry. I do look forward to seeing you, though, when you come up again. I'm glad you got to spend some time with you family before he passed.

I'm sorry your uncle died. It is especially hard to think of one less person being around who loves your kids and makes them feel valued. It sounds like he was a really great uncle.
