Shit happens quick.. understatement
« on: April 08, 2010, 12:50:28 PM »

My uncle passed away this morning from stomach cancer.  He was given 2 days to live yesterday.  The world
lost a very good man today.  Retired NYC Fireman and one of the most upbeat positive men I have ever met.
RIP Uncle John  :angel1

One of my Sister's, Pops & I are leaving tonight for NYC.  Strange how life works sometimes.  My other Uncle had a
stroke and is barely hanging on, and now this comes completely out of the blue.  fucked up

Thanks for the kind words!

Sorry for your loss.  I second what 9AMdp said.  I think your uncle would be happy to know that he had a big enough impact on you that you posted how great of a man he was.

It amazes me the positive impact my Uncle had on so many peoples lives. The viewing last night was very surreal. They had 100's of pictures out of famil and good times from years past. His three daughters and my Aunt are holding up better than the rest of us.

Sidenote: I got to eat breakfast thismorning with some family at ones of those diners from the TV show Diners Drive Ins and Dives. It was really good. The only place I've seen where you can order a Tom Collins and a side of eggs!  They also have a full bakery where I scored my Pops a black n white cookie FTW. Viewing again tonight then funeral tomorrow. Then we are hitting the city that never sleeps for a few days to blow off some steam.
