Remembering My Uncle


A week ago, I lost my Uncle. He was an amazing person, who taught me many things over the years. He taught me the value of a good joke and the subtleties of humor. He taught me tons of amazing history: Most of which was true. Most importantly, he showed me what true strength is.

For the majority of my adult life he was fighting cancer (20 some years). True strength doesn’t come from training or practice. It is your Will to keep going, no matters the odds, no matter how tired you are, no matter the pain, no matter the obstacles. He fought through too many obstacles to count. Persevered through pain, procedure, and set backs again and again. He simply kept going.

That is the last and most important lesson I take from my dear Uncle Bobby. Be Relentless!

I will.
