Uncle Leon- Sad Post

August 28th, 2006 at 04:02 am

Uncle Leon passed away this morning. He was nana's brother, the one who was closest to her. He has been up and down for a while with an illness that runs in nana's family and has claimed almost all her cousins and now 2 of her brothers.

Nana always said that Leon was the 'sister' she never had (no, he wasnt gay, they were just very, very close). (Nana was the oldest and only girl of 4 kids)

Poor nanas heart is broke tonight. I know how she feels, as I lost my only sibling- my older brother 17 years ago.

Yes, we are grateful that Uncle Leon is no longer suffering...but it doesnt make it any easier on those who will forever miss him.

Go in peace Uncle were a cherished brother, husband, father, Uncle and friend and you lived a good life. Say hello to Lyn for me.

    You and Nana will be in my thoughts and prayers. Didn't she visit him not too long ago? I hope it was the visit you mentioned and she got to spend some time with him!

    Thank you all for the kind thoughts and prayers.

    yes, boo- she did get to visit him recently (what a good memory you have) He was pretty sick then...but he was like a little kid when nana got there...they had such a nice time together, and nana has some nice pitures from the visit.
