Sad update to yesterday's post

It is with a heavy heart and sore eyes that I write that my uncle passed away this morning after a long and painful night for all involved.  It is a blessing that he is no longer in pain, but the real pain now begins for those he left behind.  He left us far too soon and will be dearly missed by all, but most of all by my aunt, his wife of nearly 52 years, and his two children and three grandchildren.  I'm certain that he was greeted by those that went before him who are now "showing him the ropes".  Our loss is most definitely heaven's gain and we take comfort that we will see him again someday. 

In the spirit of accuracy (that's the accountant in me coming out), I have to note that I found out today that my uncle's cancer was actually diagnosed in June 2006, not 2005 as I wrote yesterday.  Either way, he put up a valiant fight against a truly evil disease.  RIP Uncle Dean.

I'm sorry to read about the loss of your uncle - I hope you'll take comfort in knowing that he is now pain free. I will keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers.
