Awww, that's such a great pic you made Holly! I'm so sorry about your uncle! Cancer is such a tragic thing to lose a family member to. John's lost about 3 relatives that way, and I've had my own scare. I can say, you're uncle looked happy in the pics regardless as to how he may have been feeling

Holly Ann, I am really sorry about your loss. It sounds like you guys had a great relationship. A lot of people I know won't miss funerals for anything, but when it comes to visiting somebody in the hospital they're far too busy. It sounds like you really had your priorities in order.

Awful! Sorry to hear this, very sorry. My dad passed away at 54 in front of me


How did he get lung cancer at such a young age?

thank you all so much for your thoughts and kind words. i loved my uncle with all my heart and more. we used to joke that i was his kid. the girl with him in the first pic is my cousin his older daughter.

he could light up a room with his smile. thats the thing i miss the most about him. he was 41 when he died. he was a smoker but also worked in the construction and asphalt industry for years. there was a certain type of concrete the company would use a lot of that has been known to show complications/illnesses.

Your Uncle Phil looked like a great guy. You did an amazing tribute to him. I had a good friend in 1997 die of Lung Cancer as well. She was only 43.
