I Will Have No Fear.

Spring is finally here. It might not feel like it or even look like it, but it is here! I don't know where to begin. So much has happened since my last blog! My Uncle J passed after a long battle with heart disease and multiple bouts with cancer. I remember in 2020, he had us all on Zoom and he told us that he wanted to go into hospice. His cancer had returned, and he didn't want to go through chemo again. The family talked him into not giving up and he decided to go through treatment. For the next two years my uncle enjoyed his life. I found out he was even driving from Milwaukee to down south some weekends. He was living his best life and then the cancer came back. They gave him six months to live and my uncle was at peace with it. During those six months, his daughter caught Covid and was dying. While trying to go see her, he had another heart attack. His daughter died without him being able to be by her side.

I know my Uncle J's story is a lot to even imagine happening to one person and it breaks my heart to think of all he had to endure before he passed from this world to his eternal life. My Uncle has had to deal with the loss of 3 children, wife, two brothers, a niece he raised and the murder of his sister. I forgot to mention that his mother died giving birth to my mother. Yet, I remember a man that was calm, well dressed and always laughing. He wasn't perfect but who is? Towards the end of his life, he got right with God. That's all that matter. We had a quite a few heart to heart talks towards the end of his life. He had regrets but he still had hope that when he passed from this life, that he would be reunited with his loved ones. My Uncle was so ready to go to heaven that he asked the hospice nurse was she going to just give him a shot so he could go. He was ready!
