Some things are so hard to understand...


Last night around midnight my phone rang - I jumped out of bed to grab it & it was my father so right away I knew something was wrong b/c he was calling so late. My first thought was that something had happened to my mother, but what he said was the furthest thing from my mind. He told me that my Uncle Charles (my mother's brother) had passed. I honestly could not believe it and am still in that "this isn't real, is it?" stage.

People were lucky to know my uncle - he was an amazing man. Uncle Charles could do anything; he could build anything; he could fix anything. And he had more patience than any man I've ever known. He was a fantastic singer. He was 67 years old when he passed away. My mother's little brother and my Grannie's baby boy. I feel for my Grannie - I can't imagine how hard it is to lose your child. He was a husband, a father, and a grandfather.

And I will miss him so very, very much.
