November 7th, 2011.
I blog that my uncle is now sitting on the clouds over me.
I didn’t get to say goodbye. I didn’t know the next time i would see him would be the last. I didn’t know the next time i would see him, he would be lying in a casket. I didn’t know..
He was my favorite uncle. The one that made me laugh every time i went to visit. The one that was playing golf with his girls and accidentally hit one in the nose. The one who was always so inviting with a smile on his face. The one who was having a rough time with his family, but always stuck through it. The one always with a smile, and something funny to say.
The last time i saw him i was young, around 13, and he told me to be what i wanted. I’ll never forget sitting in his living room, looking at the pet turtles he had, and hearing him say these words. Maybe he wasn’t the best man, maybe he wasn’t a role model, and maybe he wasn’t the best father. But anyone who is strong enough to always keep a smile, will always be remembered in my heart.
May you rest in peace Uncle, and watch over me. I’ll be there soon. I love you<3
