R.I.P. Uncle Raymond

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Today is a beautiful sunny day. It will be a very emotional day for our family as we will be attending the funeral of my Uncle Raymond. A beautiful day for a funeral. The world is now missing a great man, loving father and grandfather, husband, super uncle, and a wonderful friend.
I went to his viewing last evening and I have to thank God that he is no longer suffering. It is my understanding that he had surgery last week then threw a blood clot. He has been having some health issues the last couple of months although no one every thought it would lead to his death. He has always seemed larger than life. He has always had a great sense of humor and would do anything for anyone. He was the greatest uncle a girl could ever ask for and he will be greatly missed by so very many people.
I have been blessed to have such a great man as an example as I was growing up and even in adulthood. R.I.P. Uncle Raymond.
Blessings and hugs,

Wishing everyone a wonderful week of blessings.

Having the greatest uncle in the world!!!
My wonderful family and a loving husband. I love you!!!
Enough "bad" things to keep life interesting
Thankful for each new day that I am given!!!
Unexpected twists and turns in our lives
God is in the "miracle" business!!!
Thank you, Lord, for your guidance and patience with me!
Too many positives and blessings to list them all here....Praise the Lord!!!

  My sincere sympathy to you and your family. We lost my wife's Dad last May. I know if it's hard on my wife and I that Mom is going to have just that much more of one coming soon on Mother's Day. We all know he is in a better place, but some days the missing is much harder. Blessings to your family. emoticon
