My uncle was only 44 and had been in a very bad vehicle accident a week prior to his death. It has been very hard and very unbelievable for me. I was unable to make the trip to Philly to be with the rest of the family over the past week so that has made it a little harder I think.
This is an uncle that I have written to often over the years and sadly I have not answered his last letter as I have gotten lazy and it takes me months sometimes to write back. I hate that I let that happen.
The other thing that is really bothering me is that Uncle Bill and Dad had not talked in four years because my Uncle Bill had some issues with my dad that had to do with when my Grandpa died four years ago. My father had nothing to do with that, but Uncle Bill harbored a grudge with my dad about it. I hate it for my pop that Uncle Bill passed before they could make it right.
I will miss him a lot even though we were not in constant contact. He was a very loving person and cared for his family deeply. He had a hard life and should not have left it so soon as he was just beginning to enjoy it.
