uncle tony

I've had a couple posts I've tried to share but honestly, my world was rocked this week when my uncle passed away. I got the call Wednesday afternoon that he had a stroke and was in a coma. Because of the placement of the stroke it was deemed inoperable and then after more tests they discovered that the damage was too extensive that there was nothing that could be done to save him. He passed away shortly after 5:30 pm Thursday evening. 
I will always remember the life of my uncle, the sheer joy, the love, the kindness, and the sass that flowed freely whenever you were around him. I will always remember him as having a glass of red wine resting on his belly and his perfect high pitched laugh that my dad could bring about so easily whenever they were together. 
My father (in the vest) & Tony... look who has his signature glass of wine!
