Truly going to be missed, say a hello to our family members in Heaven.
My Dearest Uncle Junior,
As much as you made me laugh, I cry just the same! You always joked and laughed and you loved to entertain. There are no times that I can recall that you did not make people laugh. You left us so quickly and we have no words to describe how we feel; what we feel; or what to feel. It is so true that sometimes we never get to say Goodbye, and I believe that this is what leaves us in shock. If we had only known that there would never be another conversation; another visit; another laugh; or another facetime. If we had only known that you would get your wings this soon there would have been so much more to say. Since the day you left, every morning I wake up and every night I go to bed shaking my head, and saying out loud, “I cannot believe you are gone!” I often and I feel sorrow for Morgan, Aaron, Michael, Damien, Grandma and my Mother. I often cry and wonder what will do and how do we go on? My Mother talked to you everyday and made sure that you talked to Grandma. And then, my Mother would tell me everyday that she talked to you and would share a “Junior” story. Now what? What will we do? I have no answers but I am filled with sadness with the hopes that this season will change. Now what? What will we do?
Today I thought about you and I smiled. My mother missed you dearly.
Tell Anita and Grandad that I said —- Hello♥️
