I have a sad but heart warming story to tell you. My uncle has passed on to a much greater place in heaven. When I had gotten the call from my mom I knew something wasn’t right. Then she had told me the news about uncle Steve. He had passed on, on Nov. 28th 2011. His date of birth was Sept. 10th 1952.
He had passed away while he was at work. No one knows what the cause of death was but nurses think it could have been a heart attack. Not really sure though.
I was in tears when my mom told me this news. That night my Mom, Frank who is my step dad, and my grandparents, an uncle of mine and his wife and I went to the hospital to say our goodbyes.
My uncle Steve had fallen face front so his face was badly cut up. A lot of tears streamed down like a flowing waterfall. I kissed his head twice and told him that I loved him more than he would have ever known.
That night I didn’t sleep at all. Actually for a while Milo knew something was surely wrong. I hardly never cry but when I do everyone knows something is wrong. Milo knew and she protected me so much its unbelievable. Milo comforted me more than usual. She was on guard for me at all times. She had never left my side.
Milo is like the glistening snow, so pure in heart. Milo is my Christmas angel that god so blessed me with.
When I see Milo here with me I see that Milo has angel wings to fly to me and help me through it all. In time she tells me her wings are never broken. One day I will have to help others in need of me too.
In heaven my wings are spread out for you and one day we will be reunited once again and our wings will be spread out even further when we are together again. Milo is the most precious to me, she really is.
Milo is like spring time when the buds start to bloom and turn into beautiful flowers each bud that blooms in our hearts keep growing with love, peace, happiness and hope and so much more. Rest in peace uncle Steve. We will be re untied once again. Each heart beat God gives me is for Milo.
