Due to the nature as to how eduacated I am with computers, I do not know how to copy and paste my uncles obituary picture to my blog. My uncle Vic passed away last Tuesday due to a motorcycle accident. He is the oldest brother in my dads family, and has 8 children. I have many thoughts as to what my cousins may be feeling at this time in their lives experiencing the death of their father. I don't even want to wonder what it would be like to lose my dad. Though because of losing Vic, the thought crossed my mind. I wonder what I would feel if I lost one of my sisters or even both. And I have wondered the pain that my grandma has experienced having lossed 3 children. My prayers and thoughts are with my family and loved ones.
My dad spoke at the funeral service. Here is a poem my dad wrote a while ago. He shared this at Vic's funeral.
Death?? Oh yes!! I'm familiar with him
He has taken my brother(s), my sister, my friend
He has taken my father, my granddaughter too
He has taken the old, he has taken the new.
And each time he came he tore me a part
and left me with such a large hole in my heart
but all you who loved me knew of my pain
and helped me until I felt normal again.
So each day I pray and thank God above
For each one of you and all of your love
and I thank Him for each of those dear ones who've died
for they each added joy and brought strength to my life.
And I know that some day death will visit again
I don't know the who or the how or the when
and when he comes I'll be broken anew
but thanks to you all I know I'll make it through.
And someday death will come calling for me
and when he does, what a friend he will be
for love is eternal and death cannot end
this love that I feel for my family and friends.
Jayden is waiting, Victor is there
When we finally meet a reunion we'll share
and I know that my joy will be more than my pain
when I finally see all my loved ones again.
