uncle Thom. or fuck cancer!
i am one of those people for whom it takes things a bit to sink in. most of the time things just seem unreal when they're happening, then there will be that one little thing that really makes it sink in. hit home, if you will. my uncle thom died a week ago today. he had cancer and i knew it was going to happen. i didn't think it would be quite so soon. anyway, i opened up the newspaper to and found this.
and it happened.
i googled him, and found a blog someone else (one of his friends) wrote about him. http://people.tribe.net/67336945-52b3-404c-8c29-1bbb4b007...
also, i heard i get his little mermaid watch. claire gets tinkerbell.
I'm definitely doing the "fuck cancer" pattern from subversive cross stitch. i'm thinking it needs "homo sweet homo" to go with it, because (you'll know if you read that blog) he was gay.
