It doesn't get easier...


I would have liked my first post after spring break vacation to be fun and silly.

My cousin called me with the news that my uncle passed away today from a stroke. He was a jovial, wonderful man.. never afraid to show emotion.

He loved music, sweets and his family. He raised three daughters and was a devoted husband for more than 50 years.

Every Christmas when I was a kid meant going to Midnight Mass... and this song was always sung. My uncle loved it and sang it with all his might, attempting that high note with gusto... the way he lived life. It's my favourite memory of him. I can still hear him singing.






I know Mom was waiting for him.

Bon voyage Oncle Marcel... Je t'aime.

Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!
