Good-bye to Uncle Willie

Monday, September 06, 2010

My non-uncle - my father's best friend of over 70 years - passed away this weekend. He'd had Alzheimer's for about 10 years, was 85 or so, and, well, it was his time.

But he will be missed. He had a lovely wife, two daughters, and was like an uncle to my brothers and sister and me. In fact, my sister and I used to argue about which one of us would marry Uncle Willie when we grew up. We adored him.

So good-bye, Uncle Willie, you leave this world with lots of love.

    So sorry to hear that. Alzheimers is such a sad way to go. I pray he is at peace.

    My condolences: Alzheimer's is such a difficult way to exit.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy to come to terms with the loss of a much loved relative or friend. especially when they have been such a big part of our lives. it takes time before the grief turns into fond memories and eases the pain.
