The angels came

Today, the angels came for my Uncle Jim.

The brain tumor that was found earlier in the year wasn't going to go away, although the surgery and radiation did buy him some additional time with his family. I'm really glad we went to visit in the early summer, and got to see him (and everyone else) while we could.

His passing was peaceful, for which we are immensely grateful. He had been struggling with chest congestion for some time, but today there was no trouble breathing, just ... quiet ... then more quiet ... then gone.

He was a good man, with a big loving heart. He will be very much missed.
