We received some shocking news late last week: my niece passed away. She was 31. No one could have prepared us for any sort of tragedy like this, and the family is in shock and disbelief. You can never tell how much time you have, so don't waste it. I wish I had spent more time (and had more time to spend) being the Favorite Uncle. Now, I have memories, and wish that there had been more of them.
Rest in Peace, Lisa Tarver. You'll remain forever in our hearts. You will be missed every day.
