Family

Last Monday my great uncle passed away, he had been battling cancer for three years. He was a great man and some of my most favorite memories involve him. In fact the earliest memory I have of our family get together; thanksgiving at my great grandma's (who has since passed) and my uncle Charles teasing me like he used to and me teasing him right back. :D My family happens to be very sarcastic in this way. My great uncle Charles was also the one who showed me how to fish, I will never forget that day he helped me real my first fish in . The first and last fish I ever caught. I'm happy that he is no longer in pain but selfishly wish he was still here with me.

Also my grandpa Lewis has been battling cancer for the last two months. It has been really tough on him. Its absolutely the worst thing to see this cancer take everything from him. He is no longer the fun, sarcastic and strong man he was just a few short months ago, he is now quiet and frail. I love him so much and want nothing more than for him to tease me again in the sarcastic way he used to. In the past month he has lost so much weight he is hardly recognizable, lost the ability to sit up, walk or bathe himself, and lost most of that personality we all love so much. This has also been very hard on my nanny,who is his primary caregiver. The strain on her has been so hard that Brooke and I have moved in to pick up what little slack we can. It has been a tough battle this far but we still have a lot of fight left in us.
