I understand Jeff!!!  Grief causes people to respond in ways that sometimes they can’t help, and then everyone around either acts out or implodes.  

It happened in my family too, and the consequences have been life altering.  

In my case, all of us cousins harbor little illl with each other, but we have not been able to communicate with each other, maybe waiting until the last of the previous generation of our family has passed, or could be seen as being traitorous to our respective parents.  And if it continues with some of us, that we feel like we have to explain their behavior or viewpoints of the past to honor their memories, then the doors will never be open. We’re currently all a bunch of cowards. 🙄

I’ve dreamed of a day, when I could just wipe the slate clean and say that we’re all human.  We all have flaws.  We all do the best we can do in the moment and sometimes we fail miserably and make each other feel bad.  But isn’t our love for each other greater than all of that?  Can we deny that we all have important memories of our families that were greater and more in common with each other?  Could we agree to cherish each other’s stories and share them? Something like that.

I don’t know if that will ever happen for my family. Right now there’s too much threat of toxicity that still exists… or might exist if a door is opened. Maybe yours will heal.  I hope it will.  

I LOVE your story about your uncle’s gift to you!  I can just picture you as a young boy trying to hang onto that prized possession, while riding your bike!!!  Precious!!
