    Unhappy Got the news,... uncle passed today.

    Well, as some of you may know, I'm recovering from knee surgery and its not going 100% as planned, I've been out of work since september, was supposed to go back before October, and now looking at December at the earliest.

    As I was getting ready to head to PT/DR appt, my wife came home from school to take me, walked in the door crying. Her Uncle,and Godfather was found in his home, his face was unusually dark/black, and there was blood stains from under his nose and mouth. He was mentally challenged and lived just behind his own parents, his brother, and his sister/husband/kids. His brother found him.

    I feel like I'm living in a Soap Opera right now. I can't believe this. I only got to meet him once.

    Take time to be there for your wife and here family. They will need some hugs and a smile or two. Godspeed with your therapy on your knee.

    Thoughts and prayers sent your way.

    Very sorry to hear the news. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Nothing like being really piled on with hard times. Surgery, job loss and now a death in the family. I'm really pulling for you buddy. Things will make a turn for the better. Still, it's sad to lose a family member suddenly. My condolences with the loss of your uncle.

    I feel for you. I recently buried a favorite uncle on the wife's side. I had no aunts/uncles of my own so he was my adopted uncle. Great guy. It's tough to go through, but life goes on. Don't ever forget him.
