it's so hard to believe my family has lost two patriarchs within months of each other. today we lost my great uncle jim, he was so much fun, such a character, filled with amazing stories. i'll never forget him comforting me at one of the reunions when some cousins were talking meanly about my black hair and lip ring he pulled me aside and told me how beautiful i was and that i look just like elizabeth taylor. i'll cherish that moment forever and i will miss you forever. the only bit of comfort i feel is that your reunited with your brother, my grandfather raising hell up in heaven!! 💗 rest peacefully uncle jim.
