another goodbye



My uncle passed away last night at 11 pm. This is the last picture I have of him, with my aunt, on the boat ride we took about 2 weeks after Elizabeth was born.

I picture him in Heaven, taking it all in, reuniting with all who have gone before. It's a lovely image, isn't it? I am joyful for him, and cheered to know he is there to watch over my baby.

May he rest in peace.

I'm so sorry for your loss. The picture almost looks like he's looking off into the sky to see if he can see where the gates of heaven are. What a lovely picture.

Words are just inadequate but I am so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to let someone go even when you know they are in heaven.

I am so sorry for your loss. Nothing I can say can fully express my sorrow for you. Sending you and your family lots of prayers during this time.
