My uncle passed away Tuesday from a heart attack. He had been in rehabilitation after suffering a stroke two weeks before. Nobody expected it, since he seemed to be making so much progress. He was a good and honorable man, took care of his family, and had many friends. He will be fondly remembered by many.
