Death...

My great uncle passed away on Friday morning. It was like having an out of body experience for me. I couldn't believe it..and somewhat still don't. Everything went so fast..from feeling fine one day, and then three days later passed away. When the doctor pronounced that he had passed, I asked him several times if he was sure.

I have never touched a just passed away person..but I kept holding on to his hand and never wanted to let go. I wanted to scoop him up and bring him home..the waves of emotion hit so hard they take my breath away.

He was a man that I looked up to, had fun with, listened to, and most of all loved very much! There will never be anyone like that again. I have so many fond memories, and that will help through the times of many tears.

The funeral will be at the end of the week..

My great uncle knew about John and how much he was wanted by us. He will now watch from heaven the awesome things that God does...first hand! How cool is that? God is good!!
