Just found out today that my great uncle passed away yesterday. I didnt really know him that well. I only met him twice. But when I was a kid he took me out shooting. The first time I ever fired a gun was with him. I was 8 and he let me fire his .22 and his 38 and his 9mm. He also let me fire his 12 gauge police issue shot gun. Put me on my ass lol wasnt ready for that much recoil. Hurt the hell out of my shoulder. I havent seen him since I was 12. He lives on the other side of the state. I dont know if Ill get to go to the funeral because my mom cant make the trip so I might have to stay with her while my dad goes and take his mom to the funeral. his mom is the great uncles sister. she was 1 of 6 kids..there are only 2 left now her and her older brother who also lives over there. My grandmother is 81 this year. to my knowledge shes a middle child so Im not sure how old my uncle is. Probably 84 or 85 would be my guess. Sigh its too bad I couldnt go shooting with him again.

I am truly sorry for your loss.|
Life seems to be about passing the torch from one generation to the next.
When it is your turn, be sure to take your great nephew shooting as often as you can.
I think your great uncle would like that very much.
