My uncle

Things aren't going well with my Uncle Jim and his cancer. You may not hear from me for a while.

I hate stupid cancer.

Unclejim 001That's my uncle in the middle, at my wedding in 1998. Annoyed I didn't get more pictures of him at my wedding. Nine million photos of my stupid ass at my wedding. I couldn't get one good one of him?

  1. In our thoughts and prayers. Uncle Jim will be glad you are there, he needs a good laugh and you are just the right person.

  2. Just a thought, do you reckon the rest of the family feels the same about the picures? Some of the best loved people in my family are very elusive in pictures. What if you got everyone to pool copies of their Uncle Jim photos and made a collection online for the whole family to share?

  3. I lost my dear uncle this year too, back in February. I miss him dearly. That’s an understatement.
    I only have one decent informal shot from him during my wedding. Actually it was an elopement ceremony and I don’t have a picture of my side of the family and my new husband. And I’m kicking myself too. I totally know how you feel.
    Thinking about you.

  4. Oh June! I am sorry. So sorry. I hate cancer, too. I am thinking of you and Uncle Jim and the whole family. Please convey all of our love and support to him.
    Do you have any pictures of him jumping out from behind doors to scare you?

  5. June, I am sorry. Cancer is a awful thing. You know, the photo is not a good one of Uncle Jim, but it does show him in the midst of family/friends and enjoying himself. Take Care.

  7. Miss June,
    I am truly sorry that your Uncle Jim is sick. They do say that laughter is the best medicine. And there he is related to the sweetest, funniest person on the planet. All I’m saying is maybe if you go visit and maybe if you sneak little Henry on that visit, you will perk that man right up.
    I am sending all my best vibes and positive thoughts and prayers out to you and your Uncle Jim.

  11. So sorry to hear this. I was hoping since you didn’t mention him lately that things were doing okay. As someone who has dealt with it twice this year in my own body I can say, please don’t focus on the disease. Stuff some cigarettes up your nose, have a beer and give the power to the hapiness of his life.
    Sending you positive wishes.

  12. Well said, Furry Godmother.
    My mom died from cancer after it devoured her body, but not her soul. She kept her sense of humor and I was determined to honor her by putting my energy into positive thoughts. Not an easy thing to do, June, I know. You can help him and the rest of your family with your wonderful humor. Never underestimate the power of laughter. You are in my thoughts.

  13. So, so sorry, June. I think whoever said to sneak Henry on the trip is brilliant.
    Be sure to let him know how many people are praying and sending good thoughts his way. You, too.
