This morning my father-in-law passed away after a 3 year battle with cancer. He was a good man, and I will miss him.

This evening my niece gave birth to a son, 9 pound 15 oz. making me a great uncle for the 19th time.

God is good!

Sam,
I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your father-in-law. My condolences to you and your family.
Yours is the second family with this bitter sweet deal I know of this month. A friend of mine had his brother-in-law struck down w/ a dbl stroke and on the same day, he became a uncle for the 3ed time.

On the bright side,

19th time for the title of great uncle !!! wow. Congratulations.

Wow, sorry to hear this.

Definitely reminds me when my uncle wrecked his semi and died in April of 09, a few hours later my sister delivered a son.


Also something I found ironic, that spring before my uncle passed he asked if he could try turkey hunting and tag along. A few days later after he died, I shot a gobbler opening morning in the rain, we then had his funeral that afternoon.
