Condolences

Condolence From: Louann Vernon
Condolence: Uncle Bob has been a huge part of my life. When my sister and I were kids, we spent a lot of time with he and Aunt Betty. Bob Used to always have a camera in his hands. He took so many pictures of the two of us together. I mean way too many. Lol. After Aunt Betty passed, my mom and I took over caring for Uncle Bob (UB). This man was one very kind, caring, and giving man. His heart broke when he moved into the Asst. Living Home where he could no longer have his Chef’s kitchen to cook for others. Cooking was his passion.
UB was in so much back pain for years that prevented him to get around like he once did. I hated seeing him like that. But last weekend came as a shock to all of his including the people at the Assit. Living home. True his health was failing however, what he died from was something we were not aware he had. And he went from one day talking to people at the home to being in the hospital practically unable to speak or stay awake. He was suddenly so frail. We were told he had acute leukemia and was in the end phase of kidney failure. They couldn’t do anything for him because of the kidneys. Anything they tried they said he would bleed out. I spent most of his last day alone with him. He couldn’t really speak that day. Early he asked for water a few times and when I cried while holding his hand and telling him I loved him, he lightly squeezed my hand. He passed away that night. He will be greatly missed. Bob was loved by so many. I love you UB!
