Uncle Vic

Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near...

And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear

All of my love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone,

I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home."

This past week was one of those weeks where the unexpected happens. Unfortunately, the week wasn't one of those happy unexpected happening events. My Uncle Vic was in a terrible motorcycle accident. He passed away late Tuesday night.
I have attempted to post several times, but could never find just the right words (and still cannot). It amazes me how life can just be going along, and all the sudden, out of no where, things change in just one moment.
I have thought mostly about my cousins, Uncle Vic's children. I have hoped they have found comfort in the lose of their father. I have thought my own father and prayed for him to find peace with yet another sibling passing. I thought about my Aunt Lori, Uncle Ron and Grandma Dean and wondered if their hearts have felt solace in this difficult time?
The funeral services were Sunday night. They were beautiful, sincere, loving and peaceful. I could feel the love for him from so many people. It was an incredible event to attend as I saw many dear friends and family members.
Uncle Vic was a good man! A very loving and caring Uncle. I felt his love many times in my life. I found a safeness when things were difficult and a man who loved those in his life. Uncle Vic will be greatly missed!

I loved everything you said in this post. This post is perfect. Last night was wonderful, in my opinion. The talks and music were comforting, and the many faces of family and friends were felt with love and sincerity.

I along with you have not found the right words to post. I have 2 drafts waiting but probably will never be posted. CAN THIS BE REAL? Has my father really left this earth? I just want ALL of my family to know how much I really love them. Thank you for posting in honor of such a great man!
