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!
