I heard almost a year ago that my uncle (perp) had recently died, I knew it was inevitable as he was 78... I had hoped to get some kind of apology before the end, didn't happen. Not that I need it, it would've been nice. I had forgiven him years ago, not for his sake, but for mine. I last saw him at a wedding 18 years ago & avoided him like the plague, before that I was 13. What a lonely end it must have been for him, I told enough people in the family about him in 1999(even the cops), that everyone knew what he was, even his own kids.
