Goodbye Uncle Gil

***Updated with link to Uncle Gil's obituary.***
On Wednesday my mom's uncle passed away.
Uncle Gil aka Uncle Givvy (I have no idea if that is how you spell it) was a kind and generous man.
His nickname for me was Annie Roonie. And as a kid I hated it. Now it makes me smile.
Uncle Gil is my grandma's brother. And he was the second brother my grandma has lost. Uncle Tony died when I was in high school.
(Side story: Uncle Tony had three sons and named his three sons after his three brothers. So talk about confusing, right?)
Gil was married to Mercedes and they have three kids: Elizabeth, Joe and Alex (who are all around my age).
An obituary is not posted yet. I will link to it when it is. Click here for the obituary.
My thoughts are with my family at this sad time.
