- Wedding: June 2013
After a 10 month battle my uncle passed away today at 2:15 of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It’s still not fully sinking in. The thing that I can’t wrap my head around, is this type of cancer doesn’t run in my family. I also can’t wrap my head around how fast this happened. I feel so so sad, but yet releif that he is no longer in pain. I only found out thursday when I went to see him, that he was exposed to radiation at a plant he was working at by a co worker who made a mistake. That has to be what caused this. My heart aches for his wife of 10 years, and also his 2 sons, my first cousins. As a person about to get married in June, I don’t know what I would do if I lost the love of my life, and also I would be so lost if I ever lost my father. This is just a horrible feeling. Tonight, hug your loved ones a little tighter, tell them how much you love them. Life is seriously too short. My uncle was such a loving,and giving man. He had faith beyond belief. In his last days, He said he spoke with my grand parents, and that gave me comfort then, and it gives me comfort now. I know that he is in a better place, and he is with loved ones, but this is just so hard. I have this empty whole in my heart. If i could wish for anything in this world…It would be for a cure! A cure for cancer. It might be ridiculous to think this might actually happen…but man I pray that it does! Thank you for reading me ramble. I had to get this out some how. I live away from my family and won’t be seeing them till the service. Whew…This is hard.
