Today I lost another family member.
My uncle found his finale rest at 7 am today.
He got the diagnose ALS 3 months ago.
Last summer he was out fishing, driving and enjoying life.
Yesterday he couldn’t move out of his chair.
Today he found rest.
He has lived a troubled life.
Filled with alcohol and abuse.
But also great love.
He is also leaving 5 wonderful children behind.
Children made out of love.
We spent a lot of time together when I grew up.
My uncle was friends with my father.
He helped build the house we are currently living in.
And he was always close with my mum.
He was the fun and goofy uncle, the one that always played with us when he came around.
I saw him in December last year.
At my grandfathers birthday.
I hugged him.
I didn’t knew it would be the last time then.
Now he is playing around with the angels, free of pain and sorrow.
He is at a better place.
And we will miss him, but also honor his memory.
I will be strong for my grandparents.
I can not believe how hard it must be to loose a son at the age of 77 and 80.
Its almost unbelievable.
But my uncle has been in touch with death before, through his alcohol abuse.
Now he is at peace.
Now he can laugh and smile and feel free again.
Until we meet again ❤
