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.
