My Tio Tavo
Someone in my family that passed away was my uncle who died last month. He was a kind, funny, sweet, lovely person who will be missed by many of his people he knew; not just his family, but friends and strangers as well from his area where he grew up. He was a person who was always in a wheelchair. He had a mindset like a kid. He was in his 50’s when he died. But he was always someone to joke around with since he knew so many things. He loved hats, cars, shoes, as well as teddy bears so every time we went to the Dominican Republic we brought him his favorite items. He always got happy about it.
He appreciated his life even in a wheelchair. He was always happy and he was born that way, since birth. They had to cut off both of his legs when he was super young but he just kept going on with his life until he took his last breath. No matter what, even if he was in a wheelchair, he still loved what he was doing.
But I am sad he is gone and still don’t believe he died because before I left to come back to New York City he was fine. The last time I saw him was in September and he was gone in October which is crazy to me but I know he is with his mother up there in heaven, walking around with her and laughing, smiling, partying up there with Jesus.
