I know it's been a while since I've written. It was a great long weekend. Mr. Higgins and I had a quiet few days after I made a quick trip to the country on Saturday.
Unfortunately, Monday brought sad news... My great-uncle - my last link to my grandmother - is doing very poorly. He is saying his good-byes from the comfort of his home in East Texas.
I know it seems like a far-flung connection, but he was always my favorite uncle. I only ever had one "real" uncle, so my great-uncles were always thought of as uncles. So many memories come to mind of my grandparents playing cards with my uncle, of his smile, his contagious laugh.....
He will be truly missed.
