Minimize regrets.

I want to start by apologizing to my Aunt Christine and my cousins; Ken and Clayton, for not coming to visit Uncle Lionel. It was simply too hard. It was too hard to watch another Patriarch member of my family die. It reminded me of my grandfather, Pepe. Watching him die for 18 months was the most difficult thing for me. It left me with too many questions of why?

I used to spend a week alone with Pepe for many years in my youth. Pepe was not a talker but, he shared a few stories of values for me to learn and guide my life. And Pepe always called me by my family nickname, Mickey. Now later in my life, it's one of the most important things to me.

Unlike Pepe, Uncle Lionel was a talker. And he always shared stories of values and what it was to be a good person. Even though I didn't see Uncle Lionel much, he always called me by Family Nickname; Mickey. This meant so much to me for it let me know of my roots and that I was home.

Uncle Lionel talked about the importance of Family First. And he lived it. I asked my wife Marcia, what she remembered of Uncle Lionel and she shared the following; 'Uncle Lionel always talked to the kids at family reunions.' 'He always made an effort to talk to us.' Uncle Lionel was always part of our family reunions pitching horseshoes and other things with us kids. Always a part of our family reunion visits.

I used to go visit Uncle Lionel by myself. The alone time with him meant a lot. I remember visiting him one time when he was in a semi-retired status (or maybe recovering from health issues) and he shared that he was going to start working again in the woods to help his oldest son Jimmy. So he could provide for his family. Uncle Lionel lived what he believed and was willing to make sacrifices for his family.

I remember a couple of times Uncle Lionel talked to me about the importance of having a connection to God. He didn't say I had to go to church but, he did teach me the importance of at least having a personal connection to God. Pepe also talked to me a couple times about this value. More importantly, he showed me the value of having a connection to God. I remember seeing him kneeling in front of the kitchen rocking chair, hands folded, praying to God.

Many of my early family memories are centered around the Farm. Family activities and Pepe's tractor. I was happy to learn that the tractor will stay in the family when Pepe died. Uncle Lionel and his family now have it. This is the one symbolic item that physically reminds of my past. I look for it every time I visit.

Due to my history of watching important men in my life die, I didn't visit my uncle. I can live with that. Not having the opportunity to say, 'Good bye' and 'I love you' will be harder to live with.

Good bye Uncle Lionel. I love you.
