My father was abusive and controlling. All I wanted while growing up was to get away from him so I could live my own life. My uncle Roger was the closest thing to a nurturing father I ever knew. He taught me how to play basketball, took me fishing and spent time with me. Years later we worked together for my father, a time we used to refer to as spending time in hell together. For three years we sweated and slaved together. I was closer to him than his own son, or brothers and sisters.

Roger was found dead Monday at the age of 52. It was a shock, and I am really struggling to keep from spiraling into a depression. There are few people I really trust in this world, and he was one of them. Since his ex moved away with his son, I guess he always saw me as the son he never had. He made over my kids like they were his own, and the hardest part of the past couple of days was walking into his apartment, and seeing how he had proudly displayed pictures of my son and baby there.

It seems like fate or something. Every time I get my act together, something happens to knock me backward. If you pray, remember me the next time you do. I need all the support I can get.

May the peace of God, which passes all understanding, be in our hearts and mind this day and always.

Remember him fondly, he is remembering you, Zadok.

Your Uncle Rodger left you with the good memories, hang onto them, cherish them.

Be strong

Hi Jeff,

I am saddened to hear of the passing of your uncle/second father. I can not truly imagine your sense of loss.

Like Llyody says, you have the great memories and now you know even more how much he cherished you. He is a good model for you as a Dad and father of a son. I think you will be a very good father to your children as a result of his goodness to you.

You are in my prayers. I believe you can talk to your uncle in the quiet of your heart. So you can let him know how much he means to you.

Peace friend,

Bob
