My Uncle Jack

Jack Erb
May the angels fly thee sweetly to thy rest.

My Mother's baby brother died unexpectedly last night. Uncle Jack was just a few years older than me, as Mother was the oldest and he was the youngest of a family of nine children.

He'd had surgery Wednesday for a disc problem in his neck. He was in great shape and feeling fine post-op. Family had seen him at 10 Thursday evening and he died suddenly sometime in the next hour.

We truly mourn his loss.

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. ((Hugs))

I'm sorry for your loss. He must have seemed more like a cousin than an uncle with the close age.
