A Tirbute to my Uncle....

This past week my Uncle passed away. He had been dealing with failing health for quite a number of years. This is my Mother's only brother...until her death they were very close. Even as a young girl I noticed the bond they seemed to have with one another. I am learning through the years that I and probably most of us take life and people close to us for granted. May be we do not mean to but over the past few years loosing family and friends I think I need to do more. Part of me will miss him and the other part of me cheers him on because now he's with so many of those who have gone before him.
