Tonight my uncle Bob, my dad’s eldest brother, passed away. I called and spoke to my pops, and he was so broken on the phone. It was hard to hear his voice cracking, to hear him at a loss for words…I kept trying to reassure him that with time, it won’t hurt so much, and that no matter what, he has me by his side through it all. I know my words won’t heal his pain but I hope that they bring some comfort.
