In Memory

No pictures today. I just wanted to stop and pause and remember my dear old uncle who shuffled off this mortal coil a year ago today at the ripe old age of 87! In doing so, he left all his earthly possessions to me and his gift has done much for our family in the last year. I will probably never completely understand why me.
A couple of weeks ago I was overcome with such an overwhelming sadness at the realisation that I would nevermore speak to him. I'm sure those moments are part of the grieving process but at that exact moment I found it almost incomprehensible.
These days I'm happy to say I think of him more with a smile on my face than a tear in my eye.
