Dad thinks a small funeral and cremation, having his ashes here with us. Seems fitting, uncle Robert wasn’t big on many people and was pretty close to dad considering.
Luckily dad wasn’t the one to find him, he called the fire department to check the place out, turns out my uncle may have been dead a few weeks before he was found, so I’m glad avoided that, even if he’s feeling guilty that he didn’t check up on him sooner.springagainafter

Sorry about your uncle.
It’s now that I realise my relationship with my own younger brother is a bit like this, though I think Tim will have a better time of it as he wants to do better and he’s not gotten into too heavy stuff and it’s not at the stage of years and years of shit weighing down. He actually has work now if facebook is to be believed.

I’m so sorry.
It’s gotta be really hard on dad, he was the one Robert depended on, basically the only family that really spoke to him. My uncle had a bit of a drug problem back in the day and had a hard time shaking it among a whole host of other things that made it difficult for people to, well, deal with him too often.
