So, yeah, I’m going to be an uncle. Not too long ago, my sister, Jessica told me that she is pregnant and that I’m going to be an uncle later in 2019. That’s a lot of pressure.

We had him for eleven years, but yesterday, just a few days after he and his brother’s birthday, was his last day with us. Now he’s up skateboarding (that’s an inside joke, of sorts), chasing balls, and barking with our other lost loved ones in heaven. Continue reading “I’ll never forget you, Deus”
