Dear Uncle George

(Feel free to eavesdrop on a letter I’m writing to my uncle George, whom I have never personally met on Earth. 😀 )

Dear Uncle George,

Happy birthday! Mom has told me numerous times today would have been your birthday. If I calculated out you would be 77 today! Oh the joys we would have if you were still here.

I know without a doubt you and I would have fun going through my shelf in my room dedicated to all things Christian/Catholic. I have struggled ever so much to keep it up to date and still keep learning more. Soon I may have to extend that shelf to a second one, but where I’ll put those things on the current shelf. We’d also enjoy having intellectual conversations (debates?) about Catholicism and the teachings of the Church. I’d learn a lot about what it’s like to be a priest in these tumultuous times and what it was like going to the seminary while Vatican II was on the verge of meeting. There must have been a lot that was changing and lots of Latin to English and vice-versa.

We would stay up late probably discussing such things as why women can’t be priests in the Church and if we should take the Bible literally.

I could buy you a lot of candles and we could have fun putting them up in your current parish (wherever that would have been by now). I’d also show you our beautiful Adoration Chapel at my parish!

I’m sure, though, you’d be kept really busy with multiple parishes by now and surrounded by multitudes of people since Mom said you were really popular with everyone you met. Your smile (which I feel I have now) was always welcoming and warm. Everyone loved to be around you; few knew your temper, but when they did they never acted up again or forgot.

I pray you’re having fun in Heaven with Grandma, Grandpa, and that you’ve by now met Daddy and his family. I’m sure you’ve even been able to hold my aunt that I never met as she died as a baby. Did Mom ever tell you about her?

Well, I should probably sign off for now as I have lots to do before evening comes and we can relax for the night.

Please tell everyone up there, all of us down here love and miss them very much.

Love and prayers,
Your niece,
Christy

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 35 years young!
