my uncle died


My uncle has been batteling cancer for a while now. About three months I got a call saying that he was not doing so good. I didnt think much of it, But I guess I should have. I got a call a little while ago. The cancer won, like always, cancer always wins. He passed away! I am so numb right now. i can't cry or anything. I am just so outta it I guess.

Things do get so surreal at first. Know we are here when you need us. I am so sorry for all your losses. Cancer can be hard to beat. With time things will get better. take things one day at a time. Here is a hug to let you know I care. hugs

So sorry for the loss of your uncle. Numbness is a normal reaction within the first 3 months or so following the loss of a loved one. Kind of feels like you are going on automatic for a while. Many of us here know the feeling. I felt it when my mom died too. Thinking of you, Rach.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sometimes it seems no matter how much we prepare we are never ready for when it happens. Big comforting hugs to you
