My uncle passed this morning at 3:30am. He was ready. They, the family and especially the doctors, were amazed he lived this long. They were helping him stay comfortable for the past few days, and I suppose he finally decided he didn't have to hold on any longer. My aunt, cousins, Mom and Dad all had a chance to say goodbye and his immediate family all reassured him that he could let go...that he didn't have to hold on any longer. I am sad. I am. But on Friday, while I was thinking about him, I felt peace. I'm so grateful to know that there is life after this one, and that families are eternal. I will see him again. And I'm sure my grandma and grandpa welcomed him with arms wide open.
