Another one of the good ones is gone.

The sparkle in the eyes of my Uncle Dan has faded, and last night he joined our family in heaven.

Uncle Dan, I enjoyed our talks. I enjoyed my time with you. I enjoyed the times that you sat and took the time to explain faith through your eyes. You were so patient for all of my questions, for that I wish I could once again thank you.

Thank your for your love. Thank you for your brilliance. Thank you for your patience. Goodness, you were always so gracious with all of us. Cherishing each person that came your way and making each person that talked to you feel special and important. You took time for our children, teasing them, talking to them, never making them feel like they were “just kids.” You took time with us, the many many nieces and nephews. When we talked, you listened. That is a rarity in a large family.

I wish we had talked about blogging.

I wish I had known.

There was so much to you that we did not know. The Kirby story made me laugh, I wish I had heard you tell it.

Here is his blog.‎
