Uncle Sammy

My family does not get together as much as everyone would like and it seems that the only family “reunion” that we have is when someone is getting married or has past away. Unfortunately, on January 5, 2006, my great-uncle Dominic passed away and once again my family got together. I was not able to attend his viewing/funeral because I was working, but of course my parents went.

While my father was socializing with his relatives he came across my great-great uncle Sammy and one of the first things out of his mouth was about me and my blog. He said how impressed he was with me and had nothing but compliments to give my father. He wondered if I would remember him so my answer is yes and uncle Sammy I wrote this blog for you.

How can I forget you? Whenever I would see you, you would always be throwing money at my sisters and me saying “Here, take it!” I know that we have not managed to keep in touch because of distance and such things, but I want you to know that I’ll never forget you. You have no idea how much it means to me that you sit down and actually read what I write, so thank you, it means a lot to me. I guess my father was right when he said, "A dollar goes a long way."
I hope that we get to see one another again and thanks for not forgetting me.

If your family members are half as interesting as you are, Gina, I bet family reunions are eventful and memorable!
