Uncle Allen

 if anyone is friends with me on FB, you'll have seen one of my uncles passed away today.  he awoke from his coma yesterday enough to actually talk with people. I'm not sure how cognizant he actually was. I know my mom (and someone else) had left the room for a late lunch and he passed while they were gone. she was going to read to him when they got back to the room. she's very tore up cause she feels guilty for leaving him for that short time and not being in there.
I wasnt really close with this uncle. he lived so far away and has been sick for a few years (I'm thinking since Hunter was about Garretts age) so we've not gotten to see them for quite a while. but I did grow up around them. when I was living with my grandpa, we used to make trips down there to visit which I remember really well.
he was a good guy, very charismatic and expressive, always ready for a laugh or to sit down with you for a serious talk. he was also a bit of a prankster. :) he had a LOT of insight into things and was amazingly smart and more than happy to give you an opinion on stuff ;) his wife is a true southern belle, very gentle and sweet spoken, always been a kind and loving spirit within her. they have two kids (adults now), great people.
we're figuring the funeral will be friday as of now. not sure if I'll be able to go. dh out of town, mom and papaw down there, the last week of school for the kids and they have finals to complete, plus I dont see me driving to memphis by myself.
I'll just play it by ear.


we put the ornaments on the tree tonight (by the urging of the kids) the bottom half of the tree is already half bare thanks to S. LOL
even Garrett helped put ornaments on, so cute, he was going "mommy! a ornmen!" he mostly put them all in the same location so I had to go spread some out later.  cute stuff!
