My uncle has died after a long illness, he had been in and out of hospital for a while and past few days been in critical condition and now he passed away. According to a relative the funeral is going to be held on the 2nd January (if I remember rightly), I just hope it all goes ok because we used to be close, but then my dad and my uncles daughter had a huge row a few years ago and haven't spoken since. My dad said he can't forgive her but I know my dads temper when it starts and I just hope he (and her) will hold the tongues. What a way to start the new year, and to end this one. RIP Uncle R.
