My Uncle David passed away today.  He finally succumbed to cancer.

I did not know my Uncle that well for most of my life.  He was the life long hippie and we never traveled in different circles.  However, over the past few years we have come closer and we’ve managed to take the time to get to know each other better.

My Uncle was the most positive person I’ve ever known.  Even after several rounds of chemo and loosing 20 pounds, his hair, and his appetite, he still had a gleam in his eye and was very positive.  He was one of the few people in this world that could remain positive under the worse of circumstances.  He did admit that he had bad days but I never saw any of them.

I will miss him and I wish him the best on his new journey.
