Dear vijima, I just saw this post. I am so sorry to hear the news. Nothing can bring down the sorrow other than time. Time heals everything, though it is a lengthy, time consuming process. The initial days are the hardest. But this too shall pass and you will arrive at a stage where you will be able to remember all the good times with uncle with a smile on our face. After 48 years, where else would uncle be if not beside you. Emotionally, spiritually, he is still connected to you. Stay strong. We are all here. Do talk it out whenever you feel low. Take care of your health.
