Tonight, I heard from my mother that my uncle passed away this afternoon. I feel bad, but I never really knew the man. The last time I remember seeing him was sometime in 1982. Ironically, he lived about 10 minutes away from me in Bear, DE. I may have even ran into him a few times and didn’t even know it.
My mother said that she had to sign the paperwork necessary so that he can be creamated, as that was his last wish. She will let me know the details of the funeral when the arrangements are made.
May you rest in peace Uncle John.
