Just last week, on the 10th, I mentioned that family is a fleeting resource. The day after, the 11th, was Ed's birthday. Ed was my grandfathers cousin. I only knew him as Uncle Ed. I only knew him as my Grandma's friend. The thing is I didn't know him.

The day after his birthday, the day of my Grandmothers birthday, he passed away.

I just wanted to make sure that you all know how fleeting your family can be. I lost a chance to find out many things about my grandfather as a child, what he was like, what he enjoyed, what he disliked, how he did in school, if he even went. These are things that I cannot ever get back.

Remember your family in everything you do.
