my uncle bob

I’m not good at eulogizing, but I just need to put something down right now…just to make me feel like I’m doing something.

I was just told that dear uncle, Bob Miller died suddenly this morning. He wasn’t ill, he was physically and mentally fit and still a very productive man–a very young 75 year old (or thereabouts) who looked and acted more like he was in his 50s. He fell in the bathroom, hit his head and died.

His wife, my aunt Sally is one of the strongest women I’ve ever known, but this one is gonna hurt. I don’t know what to say, I’m still in shock at the news. I will say more later…later…after this awful year is over and Bob is laid to rest.

    I’m so sorry
    Hi:
    I’m glad I checked your blog today. I’m so sorry to hear about your uncle. This year has been a real bitch, hasn’t it? If you need a virtual pal or someone to talk to, you know where to find me . . .
    HUGS

      I’m still pretty much in shock over this. Bob was so thrilled that his back surgery went so well, he could hardly stop talking about it. I missed going to see them on Christmas eve because my back was so bad…and now I won’t see him at all.
      Not a good year, this one.

    Really sorry about your loss. When some departs due to an accident like that, it’s really hard on the loved ones.
    Thinking of you.
