My Uncle passed away

Post by Shelby » August 26th, 2005, 9:39 pm

Hello everyone. I just got a call from my Dad saying that my uncle passed away late this afternoon. His passing was very peaceful and painfree, and my aunt was there with him. His wishes are to be cremated, and we will not have a service. Instead, my aunt will keep his ashes until his next birthday and then scatter them off of the cliffs of Palos Verdes (California) into the ocean. Palos Verdes is a beautiful area and it feels "right" to set him free there.

Thank you everyone for your prayers. I am so grateful for all of your thoughts, and it gives me a great deal of peace knowing that he is at rest, carried along by our prayers.

Hi Shelby,
As I said in my e-mail - please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your uncle. I was pleased, though, to hear that his passing was so peaceful, with his loved one near, and glad to hear that you are coping so well.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you.
Love,
Eve & Blabbermouth 111
