A decade...forgive me God a fuckin' decade ago since you passed away. It was a Sunday, I was 15 years old, a freshman in high-school still living in Fitchburg Springs with my mom. When I heard the news I was in my room about to eat McDonald's that I never finished. This was the first passing in the family that truly deeply affected me. The first death I didn't know how to really handle it didn't really hit me until either that night when we all had the family meeting or the next day at school. It was really difficult leading up to the funeral and even during the funeral. You were so artistic while you were here as I think about I may just have gotten my artistic side from you. You created art I write either way it's still art. You used to always record the MTV Video Music Awards for me when we were without cable and that still means so much to me. It was at a time where either you watch the awards or you just miss out on everything. Summers on your pontoon were awesome I remember one time we had Z104 on and they kept playing Ricky Martin Livin La Vida Loca and you said quote "If I hear that Ricky Martin song one more time that radio's going in the damn water!" . I miss you so much unc you were the best. You and Dad would be so proud of me I got my own apartment, now started cooking for myself, decorating the apartment, paying my own bills just looking for that special someone to share it with. Rest in peace Bruce I love you gone but never forgotten RIP #uncle#adecadeagotoday#RIP#2008#10yearsagotoday#boating#vmas#rickymartin#stories#memories#moments
Wow..... It really hits you when you’re alone........
I received a phone call yesterday from the hospital only to be told when I got there, that my biological father has a couple of weeks to live. While trying to process all of this including the loss of my step dad today (pictured), I realize even the strongest people get weak, and I am seriously... seriously hurt to the core. REST IN PEACE BAILEY, I’ll never forget you, thank you for loving me since I was an infant and loving me like your own! #Cancer#FuckCancer#FuckCHEMO#RIP#GreatGuy#Son#Nephew#Father#Brother#Uncle#Grandfather#CancerKills#NotFair#Why
20 years ago today our family changed forever. Not a day goes by that you’re never in our thoughts Kevin and we have our memories that can never be taken from us. We’ll make sure that these memories are passed on to Finlay, Rory & Aoife as we all make sure they get to know their Uncle Kevin and what a gentle giant you were. Rest in peace big man. Miss you always #brother#uncle
