Saying Goodbye is never easy !

It was only a few short weeks ago that I wrote about losing a very dear Aunt. She was the person who kept the family together. Today I am writing about the passing of my Uncle. He was ill but the end came quite suddenly and without warning. He did not suffer at the end and for that we are thankful. The fact that he died just two days before his 78th Birthday was also hard ( my Aunt had to deal with the arrival of Birthday cards through the post ). On Tuesday we shall say a final goodbye to him. We will remember the good times and the happy memories x

So sorry. The birthday cards will be a reminder of how loved he was ... your aunt can take comfort from that.

That is life. Everyone comes and later goes. What has arrived must go. But the greatest hope for everyone is the grand family reunion sooner or later. It will come soon.

Its never to easy to lose a loved one. Hope you and your family get through this and your uncle rests in peace. Sorry for your loss.

It is hard at first, because the pain of losing a loved one is very acute. After a few months, the pain wears off, and you will have memories to keep the loved one alive.
