Last night I lost a wonderful uncle. He fought a battle against an abdominal aortic aneurysm in which his surgery was somewhat successful, but there were complications. Unfortunately, he had suffered a mild heart attack, and some internal bleeding occurred recently. After two attempts to revive him, the decision was made to grant his wishes and let him go. I was looking forward to visiting him next summer, but I wonâ€™t get that chance now. But I am glad to have known him and have grown to respect him. All of my memories of him are positive, and I know that he was always that way. He gave a lot for his family, his country (he worked for the Federal Aviation Administration), and his friends, and I know that all of their prayers are pouring out to him. Mine do as well. Todayâ€™s blog is dedicated to my uncle, Babulal Shah.
