The storm and a loved ones passing

Last night at approximately 1:29am I was informed that my one and only Uncle Andy on my mothers side had passed away. The feeling of someone you lost is always a troubled thought, whether it be your friends or family members.....

what makes it difficult is knowing you had a connection with them whether it be conversing with them or knowing them your whole life. The passing of a life with someone you know gives you reason to reevaluate the relationship you had with them, from the time you were born to the day their life has been put to rest, you think of all the good times, the bad times, the sticky times, and the sweet times.

My uncle had many battles in his life, from addictions, to illnesses, to getting in trouble, but I loved him still endlessly and he was honestly a true inspiration because as long as he had all these problems, he still kept moving forward....

This quote was taken from the Rocky Balboa Movie because it will always remind me of one of my very close friends from back in High School and my loving Uncle Andy:

"You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life,
but it ain't about how hard you hit.
It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward,
how much you can take and keep moving forward,
that's how winning is done!

Now if you know what you're worth, go out and get what you're worth,
but you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers
saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her or anybody.
Cowards do that and that ain't you, you're better than that!

Until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life."

My Uncle for majority of his life fought, and that is why he had a life, because even when know one else  believed he could fight, he did the impossible going as far as he did and I look up to him always for this.

My uncle battled a storm and although he lost to it, the result of a storm is something beautiful, and knowing he's at rest is sad, but knowing he's not suffering is comforting. 

I Love you Uncle Andy, always and forever.
