There is a family story about me from when I was a very young child. Apparently after enduring a diaper change I looked up at my uncle and shyly informed everyone that Uncle R. was clean and dry. It must have been the absolute biggest compliment I could come up with, something that encompassed all that was impressive and noteworthy in my world at the time.

He was whip-smart, funny as hell, and he was cool. If you’ve been reading my aunt’s blog you may know him just a little bit from the comments. My heart is with her today, because last night, they had to say good-bye.

If you’re the good-thought-sharing type, I know she could use them.
