Today has not been a good day. While eating lunch with a friend I received a call from my mother in law to let me know that her brother, my husband’s uncle, had passed away, very unexpectedly. Having to tell my husband this was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in our time together.
Death is not an easy thing to deal with for those left behind. This death is especially hard on my husband because he was closer to this uncle than any of his other family members. As a rebellious teenager he lived with his aunt and uncle for a time and his uncle was often the father figure in his life as he was growing up.
If you pray, please keep our family in your prayers during the next few days.
