Gene was my nephew. His Mother Louise and I were sisters. When his Mom passed away, it seems that we all drifted apart. Families do not need to do that. Our Mother taught us better than that. Gene had a reunion not long ago, and I did not attend. It was on a Sunday and I was too busy with my Church to attend. Bless his heart, he said Aunt Joyce I am not having another. Little did we know he would leave us so quick. I am heart broken that I have gotten so busy in life to let family fall by the wayside. God and Family are so important. He would text me from time to time and say "Aunt Joyce, I love you" and I would text back and say "love u 2". I couldn't even take the time to spell it out. I believe Gene dies a lonely life and that bothers me. I have asked the Lord to help me to be more considerate of family. My Sister and Gene's Mother would not like how the family is drifting apart. We are not promised tomorrow and we need to live today. I loved Gene, but did not take the time to show my love for him. I pray I will do better from now on. I love the song "If tomorrow never comes" will you know how much I loved you. I want to say so many things to Gene, but he can't here me now. Lesson Learned!
