Good bye, Uncle Tickles...
My Uncle Ernie went to be with Jesus last week. He fought his health issues for many years. He was tired of fighting, and I don't blame him; treatment can be brutal.
Although we did not live close, he and my Aunt Jacque were part of my life from the beginning. My first memory of him was when I was very young & we were visiting their home. He used to tickle me & always make me laugh. Thus the name, Uncle Tickles.
A very special time with him was when I was in college out in Abilene. He was on a business trip, and took me to dinner! They visited Texas several times, including for my wedding. I am thankful to have had him in my life...
For now, we say, "Good bye." For later, we say, "Can't wait to see you!"
