A Loss

Yesterday I found out that my Uncle had left this earth. It hit me like a ton of bricks. I set myself up to be by the water to speak with my precious Aunt. There was no answer. I came home and then the call came. Although I knew I was deeply uncomfortable, she made me feel cared for. It was her husband who had just passed and yet she was doing her best to keep me cool. This is how this lady and her man always were to me.
Rocks of Parents to some pretty awesome kids and Rocks to the kids that didn’t belong to them. When I think back and look over the love that permeated the house where my cousins lived with their parents, it makes me feel glad I got to be a part of it.
My Uncle was one of the tough on the outside and tender on the inside kind of men. There were moments that weren’t all blissful but you still knew that love umbrellad that family.
My Aunt lost a precious son also. 17 yrs old. We have this bond forever etched upon our souls.
I just wanted to say thank you for showing me what love was.
I am thinking about you all today, as you celebrate his life and his welcome into the summerland.
I love you.
