REMEMBRANCES

Uncle Greg

My uncle Gregory lost his battle in 2005. Today, March 6th is his birthday so it’s kinda weird how today is Black Balloon Day. I was only 13 when he passed but his death changed my Mamaw forever. He left all three of his kids without a dad, after they had just lost their mom a year or so before that. I pray that just one person decides today is their last day and seeks the help they need.
