My dads first cousin passed away early this morning. He was only 54. Back in 1994 he lost his daughter to a car accident. It was very tragic and after she died he drank alot. We always called him our uncle jack because he and my dad were always close. Well my uncle jack and my real uncle mark got into a car accident which left my uncle jack paralyzed. It was so hard to see him like that knowing how it happened. My uncle mark got banged up pretty bad and also had some brain damage. From what my dad was telling me today they were deciding on what to do with his body..i think he will be buried next to his daughter and i guess they were gonna put his dog to sleep and bury it with him..i never heard of that but i think they said he wanted to do it.

Its so hard living so far away from my family back in south dakota because its not easy to go home. We are tight in our money situation that is until our tax money comes in but i wish i could be with them during this hard time. I think of my dad and i worry so much because he has some health problems as well and living with the stepmonster im sure he's always stressing. In the past year we've lost three family members. My great uncle and 2 great aunts..also my grandma has been in a nursing home and she isn't doing so good either. I guess when u get older stuff like this happens but why so young. I know i worry too much but thats life right? Thats why i try to live each day to the fullest and tell my family when they call that i love them.
