Gone but never forgotten...

Early Thursday morning around 7am my only uncle passed away...
Cancer took his life. Prepared I guess we were... shocked, devastated & heart broken we are nonetheless. My auntie is now without a husband and my three cousins now without a dad. As sad as I am, the pain they must be going through is hard to bear thinking about. I couldn't decide whether mentioning this on my blog was a good idea or not but I couldn't just go on as normal with such a deep sadness surrounding my whole family. I have lost people before but never from anything other than old age, this feels like he has been snatched from us, which makes it so much harder to come to terms with.
The funeral is tomorrow. I will back to regular blogging soon. xo

  15. I realize there is nothing I can say to make you feel better, but I just wanted to let you know that I'm sending you a hug. A big hug. I lost an uncle 6 years ago to cancer, and I have unfortunately lost quite a few more since then.
    Take all the time you need. Don't stress about blogging. Have a milkshake.
