Cancer Sucks

My uncle finally lost the fight this morning (home time, not "here" time.)  Not unexpected, but no less rough on everybody regardless.  He introduced my parents years and years ago, so I am a little worried they'll take it hard.  The Army isn't as willing to hand out emergency leave for extended family, and I'd likely not make it back in time for the funeral anyway,  so I guess the best thing to do is drive on with the mission.  I did get kicked out of the TOC for the rest of the day though... Sergeant-Major's orders.

I'm a bit off and on right now, not the first time we've had to deal with cancer in the family, but Grandma's too damn stubborn of an old Polish woman and thoroughly kicked its ass.  If there were any others, I was too young to really know what was going on.  Anyway, just another reason why I'll be getting a couple more kilts for next September.
