a few minutes ago, my dad woke me up saying he has bad news and broke down and started crying. i asked him what is wrong... my uncle (my mom's youngest brother and as my grandma's baby boy as she calls him) was murdered last night. a little story: when my cousin (his son) was murdered in 2005, he started drinking heavily and for the next 6 years received a lot of DUIs until he ended up in jail for a few months and was deported ( he wasn't a citizen, just a resident) the last 5 years he lived in Juarez, Mexico. he sobered up and worked as a security guard. my aunt called my sister of the news and my sis texted my dad. i have no idea if my mom and grandma know this. especially my grandma, she is 79 and i'm worried how this could effect her. at least he is reunited with his son. Rest in peace, Uncle.
