We Are Who We Love; in memory of a great man
Several days ago, a great and wonderful man passed away.
He was my Uncle. This is my tribute to him.
I confess that I struggled to find the words to articulate what I was feeling. To try and sum up someone who was as incredible as he was, was difficult. No words could really capture the essence of someone who had the qualities he had. I could only but try. Suffice to say that there is a special place in my heart reserved just for him, and a fair chunk of my own moral code and character that has been shaped from his influence. When reflecting about him with my cousin, we both agreed that if we were to pass away having only an 8th of his qualities, then we would know that we had made a difference in this world.
Dear Bruce - this is for you. XOX
