Great Sadness...

My last post I mentioned our travel plans.  Going to go visit my Aunt and Uncle in a few days on our journey south....last night....I learned my Uncle was killed in an auto accident.  It was a one car accident and I don't know how it happened...my Uncle was a diabetic so that could certainly be a contributing factor.  I think we are all in shock now.  Just last month I saw my Aunt and Uncle....gave them both hugs and told them I loved them...so thankful for that moment.  My uncle was a big man with a big heart.  He was always happy to see me...always happy to help with anything.  If he had it and you needed it...it was yours.  He wasn't perfect...he certainly had made some mistakes in his life....but who hasn't.  I was so looking forward to our visit.  My Uncle loved Kentucky Lake...it would have been our first time seeing their place.  I would have loved to have seen it through his eyes...he was so proud of it.  Such sadness...such a loss...I will miss him.  Don't miss an opportunity to tell those you love...that you love them....you never know what tomorrow will bring.
