    Unhappy My favorite Uncle died last night. My eulogy to him.

    I will be unable to attend what takes place next but I need to get this off my chest so this is my eulogy to my Uncle James.

    My sister just called to let me know that at 2315 EST 8/18/2010 our Uncle James died. He was 56 years of age and the youngest of his siblings. His son David is 28 and was just married last year. I was very close to my Uncle growing up and he played an important role in shaping my career path. He had a love for electronics and fostered my love for it as well.

    My Uncle though did live a pretty good life though. He worked for ABC and spent a vast amount of time at the White House. He personally knew Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George HW Bush. He has been in the Oval Office, flown on the real Air Force One and has spent time at Camp David.

    It was always cool to see him in everyday pictures with Presidents. I wish I could have the photo of him and Reagan standing side by side at Camp David with nobody else in frame.

    So for dying at the age of 56 he lived a good life. He made a lot of people smile and laugh. I always loved to see him and I do not have a bad memory about my Uncle James. Below is a picture of my Uncle taken 12/24/2003 He was never afraid to do something goofy for a laugh.


    Love and miss you Uncle James

    Sorry for your loss. Since you have so many fond memories, in a way he will always be with you, and has become a part of you.

    Sorry for your loss...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I am saddened for your loss, that of your wild and crazy(funny) uncle ,and also your mother.
    It is indeed difficult to deal with such matters at times. Please know you are not alone in your grieving, and rejoyce in their lives and memory!
