Iowa is where my Dad’s family is from.  Within the last two years we lost my cousin Mike and recently my cousin Keith.  Now my uncle Richard is taking a turn for the worst.  I can only imagine what his children and spouse are going through at the moment. Nothing is for certain, my uncle may take a turn for the better and be around a few more years.   Some of us experience the loss of a loved one sooner than others, and we all have a different way of dealing, coping with it.  Unfortunately time is what notify s us of our healing.
