Sadly a bit late.
Uncle Ken died early Saturday (March 24th) morning. I had this pretty much finished when he was taken to the hospital on Monday. I put off finishing finishing it until Friday.
His wake is this evening, I really wish I could be there. Dh is leaving town today for a 4 day trip to Iowa and I simply can not afford 2 plane tickets for me and ds to go to the funeral. So to make myself feel like I’ve done something, I spent way too much on a flower arrangement and sent Fuck Cancer off to live with his daughter (my bestest most beloved cousin Rachel). She knew I was working on this and really liked the sentiment.
The time from when Uncle Ken found out he was sick until he died was about 30 days. They didn’t even give him a complete diagnosis until March 6th.
So Fuck Cancer.
And hugs to my Aunt Joyce, and cousins Rachel, Joe & Alex. I’m so sorry…
