’til I see you again…

honor, integrity, devotion, christian, hero, solid, wise, gentle, fun, loving, selfless… my goodness I could go on and on… as i am about to get ready for what will probably be two of the hardest days of my life i also feel so blessed… my uncle was one if not the BEST man i ever knew… they just don’t make many men like him… and the fact that he has been such a huge, dynamic part of my life makes me smile and feel so blessed… he taught me so much and had such a big impact on why i am the person i am today… he always knew the right thing to say and the exact moment i needed to hear it… he loved life, loved his family, and loved his community… his smile and laugh was contagious and his hugs were as firm and solid as a brick building but yet so gentle and loving… i never saw this man frustrated or stressed and he fought the battle of his disease with more grace and dignity than i thought was possible… i will miss this man more than words can explain…

most that know me well know that my uncle John and aunt Christy were really more than the typical aunt/uncle combo to me… they are like my second set of parents… they love me with an unconditional love and have ALWAYS been there for me no matter what… they are typically one of the first i call with good news, if i just need to talk to someone, or if i need good sound advice about something… and I thank God for allowing me to have such a great example in my life of what a marriage should be… they showed me that a couple can be best friends and love each other through a lot but that you can also aggravate the mess out of each other and laugh about it later… and boy did he enjoy aggravating aunt christy… and we loved getting in on it too…

our world will never be the same but i know that we will all be just fine because we had the greatest example of how to live our lives with respect, humility, honor, and dignity and for that we are blessed…
