Bad News

I really didn’t want my first post in almost a year to be a sad one, but fate can be quite cruel unfortunately. I found out that my Uncle Junior died in a tragic accident at his work this past Tuesday. And, yeah, it’s hitting me hard. It just came out of nowhere, and the sad part is that it almost certainly could have been prevented. It wasn’t his fault, he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was just doing his job, and just like that, he’s gone now.

I don’t claim I was the closest to him, but I knew him pretty well. He was a really nice guy, who went the extra mile for his family. He was never stuck up, and was easy to approach and talk to. He’s really going to be missed.

He leaves behind a long-time girlfriend, and three adult kids, and a slew of grandchildren. I feel so terrible for all of them. He was only 55, and had plenty of life left in him. Keep them all in your thoughts, prayers, or whatever you’re willing to offer. I really do appreciate it. And do the same for me, and my whole family as well.

It’s just so sad, and we’re all so stunned. Wish us all the best, and thank you for taking the time to read all of this. Take care everyone, and show those you care about how much you love them. Not out of fear of losing them, but enjoying them while you have them. Nothing is guaranteed, so make the most of the time you are given. All the best to all of you guys!

  1. {{{hugs}}} I’m so, so very sorry to learn of your uncle’s passing. You and your family have my deepest and most heartfelt condolences in this time of grief and coping.

    It seems like everywhere I look, lately, there is tragedy and death. With all of my heart, I hope you all can find peace and healing and that there is better news on the horizon. It sounds like you have very fond memories of him—cherish those, keep them alive. Keep those memories warm, and remind the world that such a light could exist.

    You are loved. I wish you all comfort.

    • I really couldn’t have asked for much kinder, wise, and loving words. Thank you so so very much!!! I can’t tell you how much your words mean to me. Things are much better than where they were, but it definitely doesn’t take away from the tragedy.

      He would have celebrated his birthday on the 1st of November. It’s a real shame he didn’t make it, to at least one more. I will for sure keep his memory alive, and try my best to be a loving light like he was.

      Once again, thanks for your words, and the hugs. I really appreciate your support, and kindness. Truly, you are a gem. Both beautiful, and of infinite worth. Wishing you the best, always. You deserve all the love and kindness in the world, and I really mean that. Take care, dear friend!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
